Painting of an old window

I’m slowly getting better at drawing smaller details and textures. This time my challenge was to make everything look old and weathered, including the wood and plastered wall. It’s not easy to spot in this picture, but I used effect paste mixed with acrylics to create a 3D effect on the wall. I had a bit of a hard time with this one because even though I added the mice and spider web to create a bit of depth in the window frame, it still kind of looks like a painting on a wall.

Painting of a Hoya

I finally had the time and energy to paint another painting. This time I wanted to copy the painting I gave to my grandmother, but instead of the blue spring flowers, I painted a Hoya “Krimson Princess”. It took forever to make, but I’m happy with the results.

A painting of blue flowers

My dear grandmother asked me to paint something to decorate her walls. Since we both love plants and colors – especially blue – I made her some blue spring flowers in a glass vase. I can’t wait to see how she reacts when I hand it to her.

Update: She loved it! It now shares a wall with the most treasured family photos in their living room.
