A Departure (or further adventures at art class...)


Our latest art class topic is silhouettes. Not as in the Victorian portraits, rather as the silhouetting of an object to make it jump forward - sounded a bit tricky so I decided to go completely out of my comfort zone and paint something I wouldn't usually touch with a barge pole - flowers.

OK, not sure if a thistle is technically a flower. Here's the work in progress after week 2 (top) and week 1 (bottom). I calmed the background colours down a little in the second week but I'm still not sure about it. We're moving on to a different topic next time though so it's up to me to try and find some time to finish it. Anyway, not as much of a disaster as I thought it might be!

For those who are interested, here's the finished painting from my last post which I completed a few weeks ago. Includes fluorescent pink!

Self portraits next - eeek!
