Pot of Zinnias



This is 7 x 10 and was done for the WDE on WetCanvas from a reference by Dewi. I never tried painting a pot like this before and it was really a challenge...not only the design but getting it a deep enough color.

Looks great, Joan... lapus lazuli?

ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING, JOAN!! I FEEL AS THOUGH I COULD PICK UP THAT SPLENDID AND DELICATE POT RIGHT FROM THE SCREEN!!! GLORIOUS WORK, MY FRIEND!

I think you really captured that bright light. This could be my front porch in the early morning.

Joan said...

Ron - Thanks! Just layers of cobalt blue.

Lin - You are so sweet with your comments. Thank you!

DD - Thank you and thanks for visiting.

Gorgeous, Joan. You've done an amazing job capturing the Chinese style painting on the pot - that little fish is wonderful. Your flowers sing as well, lovely, lovely work.

Joan, what a fabulous depth, nice shadow, great China pattern on the pot and lovely Zinnia. Bravo.

Joan said...

Robyn - Thanks so much. I almost thought of giving up on this. That pot was so detailed.

Joan said...

Ai - Many thanks. I was happy with the way it turned out.
