Re: giant pink ginger flower

Thanks Vena and so pleased the oranges are liked I just felt those greens needed a bit of a relief. Time will tell if they work if not I can always dull them back into more of the brown shades.

Re: giant pink ginger flower

As I said from the start this will take me forever and it still feels that way but as always I'm sticking with it regardless.

Re: giant pink ginger flower

I am happy now, finally seeing the flower take shape!!!

With all the work you've done on the background, all of a sudden it will be finished, you'll see. That small area on the left will lose importance...

Or maybe at that point you will need what ALL artists need: someone to hit you on the head so you stop!!!

Re: giant pink ginger flower

haha and thanks Raquel, no pressure from you now that I'm on the flower heay Lol. I'm dreading the top part which I'm still figuring out. Hopefully slow and steady will get me there ♥♥ but jokes aside I'm always happy to have an expert critical eye guide me. ☺☺

Thanks Lyn, I think I must just love being persecuted haha. The foliage in my photo isn't clear at all so I'm using artistic license and with my knowledge and advantage of sub-tropical plants in my own garden I hope its looking ok and that I'm not just kidding myself.

Re: giant pink ginger flower

Hi Bren! I have been lurking for awhile, been so busy mastering oils and dabbling in other media that I don't get in here as often as I used to. This is looking wonderful so far, great work with that background so far.

Re: giant pink ginger flower

Hi Delo, sorry haven't answered you but I loved reading your encouraging post. Oils sound like fun but don't think I'm skilled enough in art knowledge yet to even think of that medium yet☺☺

I haven't worked on this Pink Ginger for over a week now as its been so very hot and humid here in Brisbane Australia plus we have family visiting from USA tomorrow so lots to organize, like house cleaning, yuck, haha. I'd much rather be drawing so decided to run the aircon in my art room today and get an hours drawing at least.

Anyway here's where I'm at with getting those petals in. Am trying to work out which to leave out as they're small and confusing and how much to include... my brain gets confused after about an hour ...age I assume haha

Re: giant pink ginger flower

I'm an oil painter, so I hang out in the Oils Forum. But, once in awhile I come over to this forum just to see what's going on.

I paint flowers, and I find this work by a colored pencil artist to be absolutely incredible ! ! Truly astonishing work!

Re: giant pink ginger flower

Very nicely done! I have the same kind of torch gingers around my house. (I live in Hawaii). Mine is more of a red one. This is the first time I've seen a pink one. I'm attaching one of mine

Oilnwine, that red ginger is really beautiful. I had never heard of them until Brissie started on hers.
