Apothecary Rose

FullSizeRender 2

I am taking another class called 8 Flowers 8 Ways by Val Webb. She is teaching us eight different techniques to painting eight different flowers. I thought this would be helpful for my big painting (that I am still working on!!) and would maybe give me some ideas for making cards as well. This first one is an Apothecary Rose done in a variation of a Japanese block printing style. You can see the white spaces left make it look like a wood carving or stencil.

  1. I LOVE this, Susie! It’s so beautiful. I think it’s my favorite flower painting so far. This would be an excellent one for making cards. πŸ™‚ Love and hugs to you!
