"Foxglove in the Scottish Mist"

This was a fun flower to paint. All the "bells" with all their shadings each took time to analyze, but fun to make them all look like 3-D vessels.
Technique Tip: Need to use the shading for a cone for each flower. If one is not sure how that is executed, one has to go back to basic drawing and shading techniques. Google that to get direction.

  1. Hi Ruth, long time in between emails these days. Oh my own laptop is not working right and have to bring it in. Don;t understand what's up with the slide and the other imbeds. Might have something to do with the fact that I'm using my husbands computer.

  2. A Very lovely painting!
    Love the colors especially!

    Best Wishes!

  3. One of my favorite flowers and you did them so well.

  4. This is a lovely painting - beautiful composition and colors.
