Ok so far all I have is the background. Here it is. Seems backgrounds are giving me trouble lately. I tried to make this one kind of subtle with just a small accent area of dark pink.

Nah, I'm into flowers right now.:biggrin:

I'm taking a break. It's amazing how a little painting can wear me out. Here is what I have so far. The flowers are no where near done so no fair to critique it yet. Just wanted to show you my progress.

Ok poppies not puppies. They are looking good. Not as cute as puppies.

Well I'm done painting for today. The picture is far from done. I'm really happy with what I've done so far. I always worry about messing it up once I have something good on the canvas. I'm beginning to get the flower peddles a bit better now. Asancta this is from a Jenkins tutorial. I'm learning so much it's unbelievable. What a treasure he is.

Thank you. I'm not going to lie, I was following a tutorial to make it, but heck at least I can follow directions.

It's magnificent! All of it, background, leaves, petals, all of it!

And what if you were following a tutorial? You did it! The tutorial only shows how someone else did it, and it can give some advice, but it's all yours, and it's beautiful ^^

This is amazing! Practice makes perfect! If this didn't get a "Wow!!!!" from your husband he needs glasses! :glasses:

Nope no WOW, but he did say he liked it. I don't think my husband will ever give me a WOW over flowers...maybe if I paint a television with the characters of Law & Order on the screen, that might do it.

That is funny!....in a tragic sort of way. :unhappy:

I am so blessed to have a husband who gets excited over my work! He always asks me to show my pictures to people everywhere we go.

My husband is not an excitable type of person. I know he is proud of how I'm improving. When someone comes to our house he always seems to mention "My wife did these paintings." very proudly.
