Re: July 2014 Plant Parade

Oh these are incredible - and you're going to make me wait and wait and wait to show them too. Oww! That's rough but I'm way too tempted. They're wonderful!

Re: July 2014 Plant Parade

I just uploaded more pictures of iris to the RIL but they have to be approved.

Meggs all you need is a very shaky hand to paint ruffles... at least that's what I was told. Some have more ruffles than others and nobody will know whether it is correct or not anyway.

Re: July 2014 Plant Parade

Patti, Thanks for the shortcut... I shall give Mums instruction a go and see if I can pull it off... Its difficult when you cant sketch.. However if all fails, the shortcut I be taking...

Re: July 2014 Plant Parade

Lovely irises! I am trying to loosen up my watercolors, so this might be a marvelous subject. To be continued...

Re: July 2014 Plant Parade

Welcome Kitty, looking forward to seeing your loose interpretation of the Iris.
We did "loose" Peonies for June's Plant Parade, and what an awful job I made of "loose watercolor"! I may even have another try at loose watercolor for the Iris this month...but then again....

Re: July 2014 Plant Parade

Loose,, LOOSE... OI Vey... (Im doing a Blue)

Kitty WELCOME!! take no notice of me, Im the class clown...

The only way I could paint loose, would be if I was 3 sheets to the wind.. (Drunk )

Im trying to do the ruffle thingy, Im hopeless at sketching but I got the water colour pencils out and gave it a go. With lots of rub outs (need to vaccum now) I now have a watercolour underpainting. So far so good.

Blue just gave me the in Acrylics....

Blue your a darling and I thank you sincerely for your lovely critique,its means a lot coming from you.... heres a big hug and kiss.

Re: July 2014 Plant Parade

Hello
I am very new to this but I just posted my 1st picture as sort of a late entry in last month's Peony though my style is far from loose. So I think I will try to post an Iris for July. It took me forever to figure out how to post the Peony. and even now I'm not sure I'm in the right spot- so if I'm doing things wrong please let me know and if anyone gets a chance-please see if you can find my peony picture and let me know what you think. Looking forward to interacting with you guys ( if it doesn't freak me out too much )
Thanks for your consideration.

Re: July 2014 Plant Parade

Hey Geej, Welcome to Plant Parade, I checked out your post in the June forum... This is the place for you..
Truly its a pleasure to have you joining us and a little bit of info on your profile wouldnt go astray...like where you live etc

If your poeny was only your 3rd piece of art, time to nurture that talent of yours. Looking forward to getting to know you better....

PS Viv and I are the "Downunderers" in the forum, meaning New Zealand and Australia. Ooops you can read that on our profiles

PattiLou - Thank you very much for adding your iris photos to the RIL! They are wonderful, and I'm going to paint one of them for this challenge.
