Clematis


This was one of the hardest exercises of patience and acceptance. I am not satisfied with the final result, but I accept that my patience to work on several layers has a lot of room for improvement.

Very nice! I just want to pluck them and put them into a little bouquet! ;-)

It's very pretty and the petals look so thin and fragile. Thanks for the calender, too my friend! I always love those. How sweet of you to share them every month! Hugs!

Wow, does the final product look AMAZING! Seriously, it pops out at you with that shading and texture. Very nice.

I admire your patience to stick with all the flower details...I don't think I could do it! It turned out lovely. :)

Practice makes perfect, as they say!

What IS that old saying? Oh I remember...

'The most excellent beauty hath some strangeness in the proportion.'

It's not perfection which makes beauty, there has to be that 'essential flaw' to point out the beauty. This is a most (slightly) imperfectly perfect painting.

I think the final result is lovely, but so were the two earlier stages. These remind me of my mother who tackled watercolor in the last years of her life. She was always trying to paint flowers. Thanks for sharing!

The Clematis is beautiful. You are far too hard and critical of your endeavors but I think that comes from being a perfectionist. As for patience, that too takes a lot of practice and seems no matter how much I practice I still have not mastered the art of patience. :)

I love clematis. Your detail is wonderful!

Well patience paid off Ana, you know I think none of us are ever really pleased with what we create. I never am and when I look at something say a month later I always want to go back and fix it. but when I do I usually mess it up Just keep creating your work and trying new things. We love to see it. xo
