Blobby Purpley Swirls

Vincent van Gogh painted lots of flowers, tons of them. Here’s a close up of one of the irises I copied recently during The Cheese and Wine Painting Club on Facebook. Ed Sumner, who runs the club, taught us to paint these by doing a sort of swirl in one stroke with a big brush and dark purpley blue acrylic paint and then add the lighter bits and details when it had dried. It was fun, to be honest, doing a canvas full of these purpley swirls.

This is the full painting and it’s part of my fundraiser for LATCH, The Children’s Cancer Charity that I’m running through September. It’s a wonderful charity that’s given so much support to a young relative over the past few years. Please click on the link below and take a look – there are more of my copies and something about LATCH and the work they do xxx
