well VG does NOT stand for Very Good,
this is my 5x7 acrylic vangogh style irises with comparisons
hour and a half of messing!


while I was trying to get inspired, I did this on 6x9 in WC in about a half hour


then I did this in an hour and half in front of the tv
4x6 in CPs after drawing it from scratch (haven't drawn for a while! usually outline from a printout)


thanks for the images Helen, I have a couple others saved too (they may make it here, or the catchup thread)

Oh I think those irises turned out pretty well Bonnie - so did the bottles (30 mins - yikes!, that's fast!) and you're drawing is good enough not to need a print-out!!! It's good!:D

I like all of them Bonnie, of course you know my favorite but love the colors in the bottles and the VanGogh influence does come through on the Iris.

I like them all, but the son and baby are great. Is that correct ? Probably not.......

I really like what you call your 'messing' because it is so pleasing to the eye. You have done so much and it's all so good!

Lovely work! Love the vibrant colors of the bottles:)

Very well done I'd say.. On all counts..

Though.. I'm a bit partial to the bottles, it has a wonderful feel of looseness with excellent color and contrast.

well VG does NOT stand for Very Good,
:D I loved that line Bonnie :lol:
I see both the Van Gogh and the Very Good in those Irises. Nice work!! Your work with the bottles in 30 min is very impressive there's a nice lightness about it. The free style drawing is very well done, would love to see you do that in watercolors. All in all a good set of work here, as always :wave:
