Edges

 

I tried painting a Gerbera Daisy over lunch. It kicked my ass. If I would have had time to do the whole flower, it might have been okay, but where I'm thoroughly dissatisfied with myself is in painting the edges - the transitions from one color to another. My edges, with watercolor, are too stark. A flower's petals are smooth and require gentle transitions. Particularly a daisy... its petals are ribbed.

I know what I'll be doing tonight after the kids go to bed.

By the way, anyone in central Iowa who would like to try their hand at painting or drawing flowers is welcome to join me this Sunday, May 1.

It's from 12 - 5 p.m. Per the web site: "We're painting the town red! And every other color of the rainbow at Sunday Sketchers. Join our group for a special visiting artist lecture, then try your own hand at painting, drawing, or sketching your own original piece of art work in our beautiful tropical dome setting. Juried art contest at the conclusion of the day. Cost is $4.00 per person. Bring your own art supplies."

I've got extra palettes and watercolor paints. Should be fun :)

You know what I look like (<-- see dopey face at left) and I'll be wearing my red shirt. Hope to see you there! (And a special thanks to Stefanie, who brought it to my attention!)
