Its hard to choose, but I think I like this Milk Thistle I did for the September 2012 Plant Parade the most. Its Acrylic on A4 Canvas Pad.

I like the shading I achieved and I think the background set the Thistle off wonderfully.. Hope you enjoy.

Most of my flower paintings, in 2012 were done for the Plant Parades.
My favourite was this one;
From the May Plant Parade - The Challenge was to paint a Bird Of Paradise flower in the Art Nouveau style.
I really struggled with this, but I got there in the end.

9in x 12in - watercolor on wc paper


Thanks for looking.

Re: Best of 2012 - Floral Art Show

I think the one I enjoyed doing most was the canna from the Plant Parade in March.

It's pen and acrylic inks wash.
Using the pen is very therapeutic

A5 size.

Re: Best of 2012 - Floral Art Show

This started as a Plant Parade project which involved a gate, but didn't finish til months later.
Original Post

Acrylic on Arches board, painted area 16.5" x 13. I chose this one for here because it took on a life of it's own after only drawing in the gate itself and I actually completed it and for the most part was pleased with it.

I think this is the only one that I completed in 2012. It is pan pastels on Stonehenge paper 24.5 X 33.5 inches.

This is a 16" x 20" oil on canvas. I've only posted a couple on this forum during 2012, because most of my posts go into the Oils Forum.

Here's the link: http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/show....php?t=1172452

24x18 watercolor on Canson 140 lb cold press block/Daniel Smith paints, chosen for its stately grace, as if it is an entrance into a mansion's landscaped gardens. This was my choice to paint for my April 2012 hosting of Plant Parade.

Re: Best of 2012 - Floral Art Show

I think this is my favourite.
In 2012 I set myself a task to paint looser and did several paintings from life with several from my garden flowers in situ. I like the flow of this one and I think it was just at the stage where I was starting to get the hang of using more paint and using looser strokes. I do find this hard, and keep finding myself reverting back to a certain tightness, so I need a lot more practice at this.
