… but here I am, adding some plants to my abstract paintings.
I think I have a lot of resistance to painting flowers. I still don’t paint them, by the way. Some artists do it beautifully, like my friend Mindy Lacefield (who has a great class about it, called Rustic Blooms).
Books for references
In Québec, we are lucky to have the banQ, which is a gigantic free public library. You know now that I am an avid reader, but this is a hobby that can be expensive (think that a book is usually around 25$ and I read one to two a week…).
Here are the first two books I was able to grab at the library and I even added them to my Amazon wishlist so I know where to find them when I’ll be able to purchase them.
They give step by step instructions on a lot of flowers/plants/cacti. The second one even adds the symbolism behind each, which you know I am a sucker for 😉
What about you?
Is there something you swore to yourself you would NEVER paint or create, but finally caved in for some reason? I’d love to know (please, tell me I am not the only one! lol).
