WDE 3-20 Combo - Flowers in an Exotic Bowl

Hi, everyone. Here's a combo laced with much artistic license! I used the purple petunias and 3-pots-with-greenery lovely ref photos for general inspiration - really. Fair warning, it's a bit of an eye popper, you might want to wear sunglasses. (Not my usual style, I think I was trying to cheer myself up, given the state of things).

Created with wc pencils, wc pens, marker pen, and soft pastels on a support of heavy hot press paper. Size is 8" x 12", and it took a little over 2 hours. Seriously, I haven't done art for a few weeks, being somewhat in shock over the pandemic, but now I'm feeling more courageous, and gee whiz it's great to be back in the studio. God bless you one and all.

Thanks, Dewi, for hosting a great WDE this week.

Bright and cheerful! Painting is very therapeutic; more people should try it.

Cheered me up for sure, Connie, loving all the bright colors you put into it. The pot reminds me of Talavera pottery.

That's the point: forgetting the gloomy situation by having fun with art! You did a great job with this combo. Lovely vibrant colours!

No Connie, your painting didn't hurt my eyes. I looked at these flowers with pleasure, and I love how you have used the colours of the flowers in order to improve the painting of the pot. And I love the bright colours.
