View Full Version : Dumb Question

Do big flowers, (outdoors), count as still lifes or landscapes or what? http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/04-Sep-2001/purppansies2.jpg

I don't think it's a dumb question, but I'm darned if I know the answer. Usually still lifes are indoors, but I've seen them painted outside on patio tables, etc., so I don't think that's a requirement. Many of them include flowers, too! More and more confusing...however, I have no doubt that somebody on this site with a passion for search engines will answer your question definitively!

Thanks, Rose Queen. I guess I'll just consider them "florals" for now.:)

Whatever it's called, I love it. The colours are gorgeous. :D
How about " A Gardenscape" :D

Hi jpope!
Good question. I paint them too, and I also do still lifes. I've always differentiated between them, though, calling the flowers and plants "botanicals." I've recently done a painting of dried flowers, though, and I'm thinking it's a toss up as to what category to stick them in.
Like the fresh feel of this one. Pansies always make me grin, too.......LOL, and I like the dusty miller. Just finished a painting of dusty miller yesterday, as the matter of fact. It's over in the Critique Forum.
Great name, btw. My husband is J. Pope. :)

Botanicals!! How great! Thanks for your comments, fellow Pope. I'll look up your dusty millers.:D

You call them what you want.

It may be the reproduction on the screen but if the blue flowers all look the same shade as they do on my screen I would vary them. They will be lighter and darker depending on how they find the light. You did the two tones fine....I woudl just strengthen the blues.

Thanks for your comments again, Vallarta. The colors on the screen are a problem because the picture was taken with a digital camera. But I find that to be a problem with any camera, don't you? I mean...cameras never capture the true colors of a painting, unless the pictures are professional reproductions made for print quality.
