I’ve been experimenting with my new paints… and I’m in love with quinacridone magenta!
Today’s Shoot it, Sketch it is all about colour and texture. The subject is something I sketched a few years ago (see below). The original photo is even older (2004 is not a typo). Just for fun, I used the sketch of the photo (rather than the photo) as my reference.

Nice work Anna! Do you enjoy watercolour or acrylic better?
Thanks, Bec. Watercolour or acrylic? Please don’t make me choose. I enjoy whatever I’m drawing or painting with at the time : ) And I’ve just discovered the joys of making acrylic act more like watercolour by using mediums and gels, so that’s like the best of both worlds!
Awesome Anna, I love that Magenta & that texture you created in your work is beautiful.I have family over from NZ for the week so I didn’t manage to get a Shoot it, Sketch it done. But I am enjoying everyone that has done a Shoot it, Sketch it today!!
Lovely ! they look like they are free form swaying and dancing Anna .
I like seeing the close up of your brush strokes with the Quinacridone (GOSH !) Magenta 🙂 acrylic …
Nice to see it all in progression .
So beautiful! I love the layered background texture.
ciao! just beautiful. the angle is just the best; great perspective.
Thanks for the like, Anna, on “Anticipation Flowers.” I love Gerbera Daisies too, and have done some pen & ink studies of them. They are on my blog. See you again.
