Becoming an Impressionist

I will not be graphic in my execution, I will be an impressionist.

… It is so hard to change old habits. I have a graphical background so I put an outline on everything I draw. I am trying to change, the flower painting here is an exercise in trying to loosen up. I’m happy with the result.

More flowers

I am really happy with the top half of this watercolour, the bottom was difficult though, I had to correct my mistakes often. I’m not experienced at painting flowers, heck, I’m not experienced with watercolouring full-stop. I like the challenge though, trying new things, like cars, I’m not interested in speedy auto mobiles but I did enjoy trying to draw them, they where difficult, just like these flowers. Practice and learn, practice and learn…. 🙂

Japanese Flowers

I like painting flowers, after nudes I think painting flowers is my favourite. My preferences change like the wind though, next week it might be cows!

Watercolour flowers – mass5000

I tried my hand at flower painting yesterday, it was a birthday card for my sister. It was great fun and so today I looked for some inspiration on the internet.

maas5000 – Check out the YouTube channel here. Can somebody please tell me her name? I’m guessing, but I don’t think mass5000 is her real name.
