What would happen if I apply the same approach that I have been using for my watercolor florals on a white ground to the medium of acrylic that dries fast like watercolor? That's exactly what I did with "Azalea Shadows". I didn't want the ground to be chalky white so, guess what, I went "wild" with pink!
I arranged the azaleas from my garden to cast beautiful blue shadows. Can you find a butterfly shape in the shadow? If you are looking for a happy painting, this is it!
Edges are all crisp, as in my watercolors. I used to think that paintings with all hard edges are no good. That is one of the reasons that I had stopped painting in watercolors. Now that I have evolved and matured more as an artist, I don't have such an attitude. Beauty in art comes in all different edges!
By the way, I took a flower arrangement class for a year at college; flower arrangement is a big deal in Korea and Japan. I am wondering if my "floral education" is finally paying off!
