Expressive Florals: Challenge Complete!

Expressive Florals: Challenge Complete! - student project

I love florals, and I particularly love seeing Juliet's florals on Instagram, so needless to say I'm very eager to participate in this 7-day challenge!  

Juliet sure makes painting expressive florals look like a breeze (her gift)...they are not for me!  My style naturally tends toward the realistic, but I really want to embrace that expressive style I admire so much.  Hopefully by the end of the 7 days, my hand will have relaxed at least a little bit ;-)

Challenge complete!  This was a lot of fun.  I think I will be painting many more flowers in my sketchbook from now on.   

Thank you for viewing and commenting on my work.  And thank you Juliet for another great class!!
