Blackberry Blossoms in soft pastel – Part II

This is very different from what I usually paint, but I am having so much fun doing it. The paper I am using is also different from what I am used to. It is a bit textured and takes the pastel well. This painting is quite small (8 X 12 in) and detailed. So far I am happy about how its coming along…

Blackberry Blossoms in soft pastel – Part I

One painting done, another one in making. This time I am trying to get out of my comfort zone and paint some blackberry blossoms. They caught my eye the other day when we were taking our dogs for a walk in the park. They are so subtle and graceful with their fine, white petals. Usually I paint landscapes, architecture, animals occasionally, but not flowers. Recently I painted some tulips for exercise and didn’t like the end result (maybe because photo wasn’t mine)… This time the photo is mine and I am eager to do this well! Stay tuned.
