Here is my Gerbera, I felt like a bull in a china shop with this one. I managed to put the heel of my palm in the wet petal and spread it everywhere, that was a big clean up. Finally I got it done, its not as delicate as  I would have like but then bulls aren't delicate are they :2funny:

22 June - house was cleaned out in  a burgalery and our new Isuzu bakkie were stolen too.
2 July - a 2 nd  burgalery. The rest of our earthly wealth were stolen
26 August -Hijacked in Balitto, South Africa. I escaped with my life. My Bmw, all my luggage, handbag ect were taken. Horrible
experience. By the grace of God I am alive. The talent that I received from our Heavenly Father nobody can put their hands on....so I will just pursue it. Thanks for your prayers.

Post by: MaryAnne Long on April 06, 2015, 05:00:50 PM
Louisa,

I think the shade of red that you have is lovely.

I went back and looked at the lesson and Nolan put a bit of a darker shade of green at the top of the stem because the flower cast a small shadow across it.

Beautiful painting. 

I actually still have this one all transferred onto canvas, just waiting for the inspiration to paint it.

Lovely Gerberas Mcwren and Louisa.  I spent all afternoon trying to draw mine and ended up with nothing!  Come to the conclusion my canvas is not the right size.  Can you tell me what size canvas should be used for this picture.
Whoever thought a simple  daisy could be so hard to draw.  Because of the low contrasts I am battling to see whether the petals should be in front or behind!! :2funny: :2funny:

Post by: Fig Artist on April 11, 2015, 07:06:46 PM
Really Louisa?  I tried an A3 but it needed more detail to fill it up.  Did you draw freehand or on a grid? I was trying to do it on a grid.  I am going to have another look at yours carefully and maybe try to draw it freehand, you have done Such a lovely job!

Hubby is home but rather alarmed me tonight asking whether I knew the number for the ambulance in case I find him unconscious.  Can't leave him alone now in case his lungs collapse again, so shall have plenty if time to paint!

Well as Nolan says, the painting can only be as good as the drawing!  I had endless trouble trying to draw this freehand and in fact ended up painting it onto the canvas and adjusting as I went along.  Having had thoughts of throwing it out umpteen times along the way, quite pleased with how it eventually turned out!

Ms. Fig,

Lovely gerbera.  Pretty shade of pink.  Velvety petals.  Beautiful background.

Center of the flower (whatever the technical name for it is - the pin cushiony thing) might look better with a bit of dark.

Otherwise, so lovely.
