Re: The Plant Parade March 2014: a forum project.

Karen, hope you feel better soon . I will see if I can get one done but I can only sit at my comp for a short time as I hurt my back trying to lift my 100 lb. dog and as I only weigh 90 lbs. it was a stupid thing to try

Re: The Plant Parade March 2014: a forum project.

Jean - sorry youve hurt your back lifting your dog! He sounds like a big dog - I could never even attempt to lift my beloved Newfounland/Labrador (who passed away recently), she was 50klgms, so I dont know how that would relate to lbs? Hope your back comes right soon and you can enjoy your art again.

Re: The Plant Parade March 2014: a forum project.

Thanks everyone.
This latest bug is the worst. I just cough and cough and every time I think it's getting better, it just comes back again. My hubby and grandson are a week ahead of me, and still coughing, so I know I have at least another week of this yet. Not fun. But I have started to get back my life a bit, and as long as I don't over do it, maybe there's hope. I'm going to be very busy doing everyone's taxes for a while now though, and I still have to redesign our club booklet. That's not going to be a picnic either since my new computer won't open files from the program I had for 30 years, and that program will not load on this computer, and apparently is no longer available, so I have to start over with an unfamiliar one. Sigh. All I want to do is paint, but I guess I won't have time for a while yet.
Can't wait to see the paintings this month. I hope I can play with you next month at least!

Karen

Karen - hope you are feeling better soon!

Tomorrow is Tuesday 25th for us here in NZ, and Australia, and for once I'm all ready to post and I'm actually quite pleased with my effort...so looking forward to posting tomorrow.

Re: The Plant Parade March 2014: a forum project.

Ok , Im heading off for a few days, with no internet available, so Im posting a few hours early. I really enjoy this months challenge, and it was lovely to be able to find time to sit and paint again.

All are Acrylic, A4 canvas Pad.

Re: The Plant Parade March 2014: a forum project.

Meggs - They are all lovely, you've been very busy! I like them all but particularly the last deep violet one! But they're all beautifully rendered!



Well here's mine. I"ve only got one done but really enjoyed painting with PansPastels. Usually I only block in with the Pans but this time I've done the whole painting with them.
20cm x 25cm - PansPastels on Mi-Teintes paper

Re: The Plant Parade March 2014: a forum project.

Meggs I do like the first one with its vivid colors.
Vivien, beautiful pastel.
Jean, great stuff.
I just had to try out my oil pastels again.

Re: The Plant Parade March 2014: a forum project.



I enjoyed taking part in this month's plant parade. Thanks Maureen for the lovely flower you chose. I used an old reference photo I found laying about for mine. Meggs, Vivien, Jean and Christal, each one of your paintings is lovely. The colors are outstanding in each.

Re: The Plant Parade March 2014: a forum project.

Wow, some gorgeous florals appearing here now with the theme chosen. Here is my attempt, titled Primula Pail, 6x6 watercolor/ink line wash with Micron 01 pen on Masters paper.

Re: The Plant Parade March 2014: a forum project.

Lovely flowers Meggs, Vivian and Kay. Here is my attempt for this month. The lovely colors of yellow, gold and red attracted me to these beauties, done in acrylic on this rough canvas paper. Thanks Jean for hosting.

Re: The Plant Parade March 2014: a forum project.

Lovely flowers so far, well done everyone.

I am new to this forum, but not to WetCanvas. I love painting/drawing flowers so don't know why I hadn't visited this forum before. I am trying to improve my skills with watercolor so I painted the red/yellow primulas with watercolor on watercolor paper, size is small, 3.5 x 5 inches.
