White Flowers and Angels

29 Faces – Face 8


This last week has been about people , their faces, as I am taking part in the 29 faces in September Challenge at Ayala's. I have been painting with acrylics and gouache. Only one face on the computer! The face for today is a quick sketch in oil. She is Julie a very determined friend. I now know what I am/have! While posting my post at Paint Party Friday, I read an interesting interview about Martha the lady behind Ayala. She said that she had suffered from “Too many tools” syndrome. That's me! Click on the label 29faces below if you would like to see the other 7 faces. 

 White Flowers and Angels

For some reason over the last few days I have wanted to experiment with white. Thus these anemones above using the pastel tools in Corel Painter. The white magnolia, I drew with coloured pencils.(I think I got the centre slightly wrong, a bit off centre?)

I have been thinking about angels lately and am convinced that I have angels looking over me. When I found this scripture it was like a light going on! God will put his angels in charge of you to protect you wherever you go. Psa 91:11 GNB

This scripture inspired this work, it was done from a drawing and painted in Photoshop.

Have a great week creating lovely work.

  2. Beautiful... I particularly love the anemones. I'm always amazes at the art that can be created digitally. That must take a lot of control. Very nice.

  5. Hey there--love the white flowers! (I wouldn't have noticed anything about it being off-center though!) Ad I like that you're using that non-color a lot in your work. It took me a while to get comfortable using lots of white when I started painting, but you really do need to use a lot of it. Otherwise things get kinda muddy-looking.
