Do you remember the Famous Cactus? It had the swirly swishy background.
I was wondering what to paint, so thought to try an experiment.. the swirly background and a floral painting.
I have drawn the flowers from my imagination. Not sure if that's a good idea, but time will tell.
So here are the first few steps. If anyone wants to try this out for themselves - be my guest!
firstly, the drawing
Wet the paper completely, then add the background washes. A lazy S shaped swish of french ultramarine, alizarin crimson and aureolin.
after that has dried completely ( which takes a while as it was very wet) I add a second wash of aureolin to the flowers alone
that's it for today, will be back soon with some more stages.
Hope you've enjoyed and even feel inspired :)
