Flower Maiden


Acrylic on Canvas, 11"x15"

I haven't painted any sculpture before, until now. Painting this Flower maiden was a good experience. I decided, if I get the sculpture right, then I'll paint the rest of it. So I first painted the maiden before anything. I later realised the result would have been better if it had been painted in oils, especially with regards to the folds of the fabric. But since I don't have much patience for the slow drying oils, I stuck to acrylics. Anyway, I think on the whole, it has come out okay.The toughest part was getting the face right. I'm happy with that one coming out well. This goes as a submission to Artistic Sentiments Challenge. Here is the ref photo posted by Dana Marie.

  5. What a beauty! Thank you for your gorgeous entry, Anita!

    I agree with Nanda....I told my husband the same thing. I loved this piece at the garden, however, I prefer yours!

    I'm so glad you found my art challenge! And I hope to see more works from you.

    Happy Painting!

    Cheers,
