woyww - Lily & Pear

Still painting flowers and fruit and enjoying the process.  The Lily was painted following Billy Showell's wet on wet technique and a bit of scrubbing to get the line definition on the bud.  Happy with the end result and more satisfying painting something larger than violets.  
The pear was painted following Anna Mason's free tutorial.  She used a wet on dry technique and I am pleased with the results ... although the green was a tad too dark.  But I love online workshops so learning new techniques is always a winner.  A slow peek at woyww desks over the coming days.  Never seem to have time to sit and visit everyone in one sitting.
Have a fun woyww

  16. I like the dark on the pear, Sandra it looks really 3D and the texture is gorgeous. You'll be known as the "Pear Painter" soon at this rate. I love the lily too, it's so elegant. I really must have another play with my watercolours.

  21. Its funny, just this week i was looking through a (very) old art folder containing my gcse work and I found a detailed study of an orange at various stages of being peeled. Goodness I must have once had much more patience than I do these days, it surely took me hours! The pear is fab, so realistic. Have a good week, Max #47
