Progress on my acrylic Gerbera Daisy

2 Comments

I stole an hour this morning, before the craziness of running around with the kids, to work on my latest painting. I really like how it is coming out! I had a great sense of accomplishment that stayed with me throughout the day.

My latest progress:

gerber this morning

The dark areas really make the flower pop and I didn’t even add any paint to the petals. I plan on continuing to work on the leaves in the background before working on the flower.

The starting point this morning:

  1. Yes, the background really makes your daisy pop. It’s so cool that you work in watercolor, and turn around and work in acrylic. I never had the patience for oil and acrylic painting, so cheers to you for being so versatile.
