Re: April Roses ~ W.I.P

This is just so gorgeous! I haven't been on the acrylic forum in a while so I missed the process, but wow on the finished product! And if it didn't look just so awesome finished, then you show the edges done and on the wall....and it's just way to awesome for words! Added to my favorites!

Re: April Roses ~ W.I.P

Hi debs. Its nice to see you round again. Thanks for the kind words. Yes having the edges painted makes all the difference. Gives the work something extra and looks more professional I think.

Re: April Roses ~ W.I.P

Fantastic painting, well demonstrated. If I painted for the next 30years, I could never be this good! Thank you Elaine.

Each time you paint, I think I've never seen a flower look so gorgeous Elaine, but his one takes the biscuit!

Re: April Roses ~ W.I.P

Elaine,

Thank you so much for explaining your glazes with both words and close ups. I have yet to paint with acrylics and was thinking of beginning today. Even though I've read about glazing and followed Maverick's apple tutorial, this is the first time it really sunk into my consciousness (No, I'm not usually dim.) Your explanations are crystal clear and your paintings are excellent. Thanks again,

(Gave max stars.)

Re: April Roses ~ W.I.P

This thread has just been so amazing. I am bookmarking it to use as a "class" for myself. I finally found a photo in the reference library that I like. Now I can give it a try. I've poured over your comments trying to learn as much as I can. Thanks so much for sharing this.

Re: April Roses ~ W.I.P

I don't paint flowers but learned a lot here. Fantastic work! The luminosity you get here is mind bending.
