A Painting a Day - Day 17: Violets

Joan (the-pearl-lady-studio.com) had these violets in her studio
Yesterday when I arrived in my studio I didn't have anything in mind to paint for my "Painting a Day" subject. So my friend Joan (a.k.a. The Pearl Lady) whose studio is across from mine at the Studios Upstairs suggested I try working on her pot of violets. Tiny little flowers, I wanted to zoom in close and tried to capture the many colors of purple and the thick, dark green, textured leaves of this pretty plant.

I debated about whether to use india ink and create my loose lines and opted not to. I may take another stab at these today and see what happens.

Love the violets !! They really come alive. Shades of purple in all it's glory.

Love it the way it is but I am sure it would also look great with some ink lines. Gorgeous colors.

I ove reading your blog!
