Art Elements Theme Challenge – Flowers

Well this year is certainly flying by at a high speed and here we are with another Art Element theme challenge reveal – the theme is flowers and is hosted by the lovely Marsha Neal. Now I love flowers and had all sorts of ideas to interpret the theme in a range of media. Sadly however, life intervened and other things cropped up to rob me of the time needed so my offerings this month are limited to painted pieces.

In my regular post earlier this month I went through some different ways you could create quick and effective floral paintings and if you missed that you can find it here.

Following are the pieces that I’ve created since then and as you can see I go for an abstracted or stylised approach. The first piece shows one of my favourite techniques of allowing the paint to run to create elements of the painting.

Water Colour and Posca Pens.

I was feeling the need for some colour and vibrancy with this one.

This piece was an experiment in a loose approach using spattered acrylic ink spattered on the paper and then drawn with a wooden skewer dipped in the ink.

I was feeling a bit stressed when I did this last piece and it became very meditative with the repetitive motif helping me to relax and ground myself – I love that about painting.

Many thanks to Marsha for choosing and hosting this theme – I’m sure I’ll continue working on this subject matter for a long time to come. Please join us on our blog hop using the links below to see what the other participants have created.
