Painted this one earlier, it's very loose and abstract.. not my usual 'style' with regards to flowers.. what are your thoughts? too messy? or do you like the experimental colour?

Love it! l wouldn't call it abstract though. l can tell it's a foxglove!

I like it!

I really like it - especially the colour

@katseyes7
Thankyou!! can you really? maybe its just me being overly critical because I painted it.. i'm glad that you can tell which flower it is!!

It's lovely and loose-makes me think of Jean Haines work.

It’s really good - but want to point out foxglove leaves are spaced on the stem and not near the flowers, so the leaves imv make it less foxglovey.

@Fflamingo
Thankyou for your help, I painted from 'memory' as such.. should have used a reference pic! at least I know for next time!

I love it!
But I’m also somewhat drawn to the cat’s face bang in the middle if you can see it??

overnightangel Sat 09-Jun-18 18:46:06

*by no means a criticism! It just jumped out at me!

You're welcome. I'm a watercolourer too. It's fun to try new styles, after all it's only paint and paper and there are no rules! You are probably your harshest critic.

@overnightangel

That's crazy! I have painted a cat before, I can't see it in this one!! so funny how ambiguous abstract art can be x

HollyBollyBooBoo Sat 09-Jun-18 19:42:35

Love it, would have that in my lounge. Well done, always in awe of such creativity!
