I think I would like to paint the passion flower - it is such a beautiful picture and I will try and get it finished before the end of March.

Hi, New Breeze (great name)

Glad to see you here. Please pick a photo to paint and then post it, so we can all enjoy.

I have yet to do this project, but I still have a month, or at least most of one. I kind of like the banjo, piano, horn player thingy. We'll see.

EP - your sketches are looking really good

Here's a monoprint of the flower. I think it needs something more to bring focus....any comments or suggestions would be welcome

Hey Azul,

Thank you. Yours is groovy. I know nothing about monoprints but perhaps if there was contrast with light flower/dark bg OR dark flower/light bg then it would help focus on the focal point?

Cheers,

Here's my passionflower in watercolour, 6 by 8 ins. Used salt for background texture...but got fed up waiting for the salt to dry so used the hairdryer. Doesn't seem to have messed it up too much.

I don't do flowers...but I enjoyed this one and I think I'll have a go at more flowers soon.

thanks for hosting, Trafford!!:thumbsup:

Do more flowers Azul. I like the texture and feel of this piece.

Think I'll have to prop up my bum knee and take a jar of water, pan colors and sketch book into bed with me and try to catch up with all the challenges this month. :eek:

I have turned your painting round, newbreeze. Hope that's OK. I love your rich use of colour here. It was a fabulous photo to use.
