This first painting is of one (this is my version of her painting ) of Marelena Pistoia's paintings in the great big book I mentioned before that I got for dirt cheap on Amazon and is AWESOME! Before I found all these wonderful artists willing to give lessons online.... I had no other way of learning other than painting by other artist's work. I was hoping to learn somehow by just doing....... So, I hope it's okay that I post this. Her painting is by FAR SUPPERIER.
(I'll add color mixes here shortly)
This study is of an orchid I actually did have bloom at my house. It's a really neat little bloomer with a long stem and many of these orange blooms all down the stem. It bloomed for quite awhile as well.
I enjoyed painting this study. Sometime I hope to do a painting with the stem and many blooms!
(I hope to take a better more well lit photo. Then I'll also add the color mixes used)....
