PRETTY IN PURPLE

 

Today I thought I would share a new digital painting I did recently…I forgot the name of this gorgeous flower but anything in purple I think looks marvelous (can you tell it is my favorite color…lol)

It took me a couple of weeks to complete this one – the veins are more detailed and i like the outer edges getting lighter. I painted this from a photo that a friend of mine sent me…she knows I love painting simple yet beautiful flowers…they just make me happy.

As a side note – the internet has not gone off in 24 hours so this is a beautiful thing also…lol.This is day 7 of my double challenge month – YAY!!!

I want to THANK you all for stopping by and leaving some love in the comments – I so appreciate your visit!!!
Come back tomorrow and see what I come up with!!

PEACE~!~

Looks like velvet - could easily be an indoor violet - I have some that look something like that - they're plants my Mom (who's been gone for 33 years)had and their babies. I found a spot in my house where they thrive. I really like the way the flower seems to be looking out of the picture!

Looks like it could be a hardy geranium. Lovely colors! I love blue and purple flowers, too.

I like how you captured the variance in the veins, the range of opacity showing the subtle depth in the petals.
