I must admit that daisies are one of my favorite flowers to paint and draw so this was extra enjoyable. I love how the background came out, so loose and colorful. I finally seem to be allowing cleaner colors and freer lines.
Don't you love how daisy petals droop in the most delicious way? Such great fodder for an artist's pen. I can see myself doing a series of daisy paintings. Now all I need is a good name for the series. I'll take all suggestions.
Before I show you the final piece, I want to send a heartfelt thank you to my good friend Vonny. She painted a beautiful portrait of my parrot Berkley. I love how she paints pets, it's amazing how totally accurate she is with a paintbrush. It's extra sweet because earlier last year (after twelve years) I had to give Berk up as I became highly allergic to the powder from her feathers. She now lives with a loving older couple who spoil her rotten. Having such a wonderful portrait is so special and looking at it pulls at my heartstrings. Thank you Von, you're the best.
(If you'd like your own pet portrait you can purchase one in Vonny's Etsy store. She also sells gift certificates, what a great Christmas gift for someone hard to buy for!)
Here's the main photo of my latest piece for AEDM. I'm calling it Lazy Daisy. :o) If you'd like to see all my submissions to Art Every Day Month, just click here and all my posts labeled AEDM will show up.
I'll be back tomorrow with both my submission for APR and AEDM - Day Nine... I think this month is gonna either make me one hell of a better artist or kill me! Hehehe. Now I'm off to bed... am I snoring yet? ;o)
