“Creativity takes courage,” by Henri Matisse
I have lacked the courage and confidence to paint these beautiful creatures of nature do mainly to my lack of experience with acrylics and paint brushes.
It’s been my desire to paint flowers using acrylics. Last year I found a video demonstration by Will Kemp painting an impressionist rendering of a floral arrangement – it was exactly what I had looked for!! There was no excuse – I had to take the opportunity to learn and maybe then I could move forward.
White Floral, (8×10) was done using acrylic paints on canvas paper. I loved the experience of painting this still life from exploring acrylics, learning several mediums, to painting with a variety of paint brushes. It was really everything I had hoped for in an exercise and gave me the tools to get started.
Even though after painting this arrangement I had to set my brushes aside for several months, at least I was able to give this a go. There will definitely be more floral paintings ahead, that I’m sure of.
