Crochet and Violets
watercolor on paper
12" x 9"/ 30 x 23cm.
I'm so happy to have finally finished this painting. The inspiration came to me from violets that bloomed way back in February. I started this from life, unfortunately the flowers wilted so I had to work from memory and my sketches. I wanted to make it equally about the crochet doily pattern as the violets themselves. I like the way the sun hits at noon and creates an interesting shadow. I set my alarm at noon and repeatedly worked at that hour even if sometimes it was only ten minutes at a time.
Thank you for stopping by, I always enjoying getting your feedback on what I do!
