Happy St. Patrick's Day!! Did you all wear green? And got a little bit of luck in? Hope so. ;)
I've been yearning to try Calla Lilies - that was my wedding flower - and I absolutely adore the beauty of a Calla Lily. Trying to branch out and try new flowers and different concepts all the time....
I studied a Level 1 and a Level 4 tutorial on Calla Lilies and painted a few....the one on the left I was going for a more whitish petal and green stem but it turned out yellowish green, and the one on the right was a much deeper, almost blood red color....I also wasn't expecting it to turn out quite that bold. But I'm satisfied with this first attempt. I'll definitely be practicing this flower a lot more.
And more birthday cards I made for some crafty friends - lots of flourishes and more delicate colors:
This one is a fun mix of blues and greens with just a dab of purple:
It's been a great week but I'm totally ready for my weekend.......See you later!
Love and Stuff! xoxo
