Flowery Faking Friday

19 Jun

anemones 6

I did this painting earlier today with the Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook, it’s a weekly session led by the artist Ed Sumner. I’m not a big fan of painting but I thought that I’d make an effort to improve my skills during the pandemic lockdown and I’ve done six of these so far. This week’s artwork is a copy of ‘Anemones’ by Vincent van Gogh. I used Liquitex Heavy Body acrylic paint onto a stretched and primed canvas, with Daler Rowney ‘simply…’ brushes.

I like the way that Ed Sumner takes us through the process – at high speed – only an hour and a half to finish a painting. I’m learning so much about paint application and composition and I’ve always been a fan of studying the great artists, copying their work and learning from them. Next week we’ll be copying one of Ed’s own paintings which has a massive expanse of sky – that’ll be a challenge – I don’t so sky …. Follow the link here to find out more.

      hahahaha – thing is I can’t be bothered to unless I get a mahoosive kick up the butt like these Friday sessions. Otherwise I wouldn’t paint at all 😀

    I’ve been loving your paintings Rosie, they all look effortless and natural. This one is gorgeous, the colour is so harmonious 😊

      Thank you Phil. It’s been fun doing this on Facebook, Ed Sumner is a very good teacher and I’m learning a lot about painting, which is something I almost never do 😀
