Sicilian Chamomile

102

Few days back I came across beautiful white flowers clicked by my fellow blogger friend Pete Hillman. Pete’s nature photography is so inspiring, those pretty flowers inspired me to paint 😀 Thank you so much Pete for such a beautiful click and allowing me to paint them.

About illustration – I skipped the pencil drawing stage and jumped to paint the flowers, followed by stems. Later added green foliage. Instead of painting the flowers white I used blue colors for petals.

Thank you for stopping by!

🌸 🎉 Spring sight – 100/100 🎉 🌸

day-100

Aww! It’s already #day100! Time flies so fast. I stared this #the100dayproject on January 1st, 2017. This beautiful peacock was my first painting of the series.
 
As many of you know that I’m more into flowers, birds or nature painting. So I decided to explore deep in these two subjects Flowers and Birds. I had plan for 50 flowers & 50 birds. So instead of painting all the 50 in a row, I decided to break big task into smaller pieces. Like 10 days flowers then next 10 days would be birds. So this way the challenge became interesting and engaging.
 
This little bird is inspired by a photo of Angela Souther Smith‎ form ‘Photos for Artist’ community on Facebook.  I added flowers to the branches. So though it would be more appropriate to end this flowers and birds series.
 
Though this was just a 100 day project, I’m feeling accomplished 😀 I did two-three #30days project earlier but this was my first 100 days project. I learnt so many things in these days. I came across various beautiful species of birds and flowers. I explored different style and techniques of painting. 
 
I really appreciate the encouraging feedback from my fellow blogger friends. This project connected me to many new friends on my blog and on my Instagram too. Thank you so much all my friends and followers for you support and motivation.
 

Cactus flowers🌵🌸 – 97/100

day-97

Today I have something different than usual flowers – Cactus Flowers!

I never painted cactus before but I’m pleased with loose colorful illustration. I skipped pencil drawing stage and directly started with paint for this one. I kind of like this, so expect more cactus flowers in near future 😀

Happy weekend friends!
