Stiefmütterchen - OD (x-post from watercolor)

In kleine Blumenkübel gepflanzt zieren diese Blumen den Eingangsbereich.
Gedacht für nette Besucher oder Passanten die am Grundstück vorbeieilen.
Wenn man genau hinschaut, haben diese kleinen Blüten alle ein freundli-
ches "Gesicht". Das kann ich von mir nicht (immer) behaupten.


Planted in small flower tubs, these flowers adorn the entrance area.
Thought for nice visitors or passers rush past the property. If you look
closely, these little flowers all have a friendly "face". I can not (always)
assert that of myself.

Format/Size: 35 x 50 cm
Papier/Paper: Canson fine face 250 gr
Farben/Colors: gemischte Marken/mixed brands
OD = Outdoor/ID = Indoor

Ernst

Ernst: I like your subtle palette and yes, their faces are a delight! It's a very powerful close up. Pansies are very cheering.

Ernst, I like the quality of light in your paintings. These flowers appear flooded with natural sunlight. Excellent work!

Stunning! I wish my mother was still living as this was her favorite flower and I would have shown it to her. Such a happy painting!

I agree about the friendly faces on pansies. It is exactly what makes them irresistible to me every Spring. Lovely artwork!

Somehow the painting conveys the delicate nature of the flowers. It is such subtle qualities which distinguish art from mere illustration.
