Colorful flower vase – flower arrangement – acrylic painting

For this painting I used a photo from pixabay as reference. I liked the way the flowers were arranged and the color combinations.

Painting background was difficult for me . In reference photo background had green, yellow and orange colors in it. So I started with these three colors. But while blending orange and green it created a muddy color which I did not like . I experimented with different combinations until I could get some texture that I can use. It was 4.5″x6″ paper but I had to cut the top portion as the colors did not blend well. So my painting came to a smaller scale.

 

I edited the photo of my final result with a few borders and I liked this below version as it covered the muddy orange-ish background on the top left corner! It cooks like a round canvas, isn’t it?

Squirrel – graphite drawing 🐿

Completed adding details to the squirrel from my daily art challenge. 🐿

Adding fur is a slow and repetitive process. It needs a lot of patience to observe the direction of the fur and recreate it.

Here are some intermediate stage pics.
