Back In The Studio With A Bold Floral Design

Creative people are curious, flexible, persistent and independent with a tremendous spirit of adventure and a love of play!  ~Henri Matisse 

I finally managed to carve out some studio time this week and started this bold, floral. I'm using my new Faber Castell PITT Artist Pen for outlining the blossoms and leaves.  I'm working on a 200lb cold press paper and the pen handles it quite nicely.   

This painting style is a wonderful change from my usual process when painting my teacup and still-life paintings.  I tend to work more intuitively on these stylized florals, allowing myself to explore other mediums and taking more risks than I would otherwise.  

Happy Friday everyone, have a great weekend!

Creatively Yours,
Laura Leeder
