View Full Version : Stargazer lilies and a fairy cat - lotsa pink!

First of all, thank you so much everyone on the nice comments on my last post. This forum is incredibly friendly!

Here's a little fairy cat I painted this morning. It's an art card - 2.5 x 3.5 inches. I get these urges now and then to paint all pink paintings with just a touch of blue or green - in this case both because the butterfly had to be blue.


And here's one of the first paintings I did when I switched to my current style. It was 8x10 if I recall. I don't know why I don't paint more florals, this turned out so nice. If your wondering what the yellowish speckles are on the leaves, it's gold paint - I splashed gold paint all over the place for a while. Golden brand fluid acrylic gold paint is fantastic. I may have posted this before but I don't think so.


Oh my gosh I just noticed the date on the lilies - it's been that long!

These are amazingly painted. So meticulously neat and illustrative. Are these acrylic inks by chance? These two look gorgeous together also.

Thanks a bunch! I used Golden brand fluid acrylics - they're not really inks, just thinned down paint with a huge pigment load. They're luscious! I do use some Golden tube acrylics too, whatever I have on hand I just thin down with water.

your paintings are stunning ... what a command you have with a paint brush and that must be a mighty fine nib you have to get such fine outlines !! ...

Love 'em both! The lilies are fantastic--love the splashes of gold paint--and the background is gorgeous!

I recently acquired some Golden Fluid Acrylics (usually paint with watercolor only)and can't WAIT to try them out. Great to see what can be done with them.
