Today's Painting #71 - Shine Like the Sun

in #art3 years ago (edited)

Hello everyone, welcome to my Today's painting. It's been a year my mom and sister asked me to paint something for our dining room. I keep postponing to paint it because I'm too lazy to make a big painting, usually I draw in A5 paper, but I make this one in A3 paper (16.54 x 11.69 inches), besides last year I'm still a total newbie, I don't have enough self esteem to paint something which will be hang on our wall.

I decided to paint sunflowers because this flower known for being happy flowers, I hope it will brighten our dining room, 5 flowers representing 5 of us (our family members)

Anyway I didn't use any filter for all of these photos, and because I make this painting at night so the step by step pictures would be a little bit unclear.

Painting Process

Like always, I start by make a sketch

First layer for the first flower

Next coloring the vase

keep working on it

First layer for the apple

Finished coloring the first apple

Keep coloring

They said you can be anything, so I decided to be creative. I recycled some trash I can find around my house, plastic bottles, a broken door (I use it as my drawing pad), etc.

I'm the type of person who is learning by doing. Here I make a mistake, see that piece of cloth? I don't like it, but I've learned something here.

Just a little bit more....

yey! it's finished.

The vase's glass and water contents are also wonderfully drawn~ A beautiful post, @hananan <3 Love it !!!

Thank you very much, your sweet comment make me want to practice more and more 😀

Your paintings are so good! I am so inspired to try water colors! Have you ever thought about doing book illustrations?

I think it would be great, but I'm not a writer and I don't have partner to write any book 😊
Anyway, thank you.
Watercolor pretty easy to do, I'm new in this field, with watercolour whatever you draw can turn out to be something beautiful 😀
