CUP WITH GRAPES and ORCHIDS
This is a kit found on Ann Kullberg website that I thought was interesting. It is done on a 5 X 7 Ampersand board I have to say i really liked the rough texture of the Ampersand and I finished in time to give as a Christmas present last year! I used Prismacolor pencils on this work.
I personally believe we must stretch our comfort zone in order to grow. I will show you another panting of mine that pushed me out of my zone again! With "Three Orchids" I worked on 800 grit UART paper although it did present challenges because I really did not know HOW to work on it I pushed forward!! I used Prismacolor pencils and Derwent Art Sticks and as I have said before I have a love/hate relationship with my work until the last mark is on and I have signed my name.
