I am longing for spring at the moment and just feel like painting spring flowers and blossoms. So here is a painting I have finished recently. I have named it 'Spring is in the air'.
Here is the painting in stages.... Stage one is on the right.
I used dark blue and black to paint the background. I also used a plastic bag to dab onto the paint while it was wet to add texture and a little bit of interest. After that I started to add the branches and buds.
As you can see from the painting on the right there is more detail on the branches and more highlights.
Next is the completed painting. I hope you like it. This is a acrylic painting, size: 48" x 16" x 0.75". It will up for sale on the website soon.
Then came the blossom. I added the darker tones first and then the lighter ones. Here is a closer look. You can just about see the texture in the background.
Before I go here is a short video to get you into the mood, with gorgeous images of spring courtesy of Youtube - Beautiful Earth (The Shadowlands).
Love and Peace
I am a self taught artist who loves and appreciates art and photography. Both capture moments of life with great meaning and beauty.
