Title: flowers
Post by: ietsieart on January 22, 2018, 08:42:09 AM

acrylic with pen . going for a kinda Asian style . Was debating about a color background but my initial thought was just white. Maybe next time a very light green ...?

 :thankyou:  for your explanation Bert, you really achieved a 3D look on the vase.  Wonderful work.  Hope you enjoyed your trip back home. I believe it is stinking hot there at the moment.

Fantastic job, Bert. I suggest that, to complete the Asian style, you need to add your signature in the bottom corner, but write it vertically so that it flows up the page, Chinese script-like.

Bert - this is excellent! And i would just keep it with a white background - it really makes the vase and flowers pop this way!  :clap: :clap:
