Purple Floral Spring Painting

watercolor purple floral painting by Elise Engh

Every time I am gifted flowers, I want to paint them! I don't always have the time to with an 8 month old needing my attention, but once in a while I squeeze in some painting time for me and paint those flowers.

I got this pretty pink and purple floral bouquet for Mother's Day and the flowers held up long enough for me to paint them- lucky me! This is not a photo realistic rendering of my flowers.  I am never drawn to anything photo realistic because that art style lacks the power to make me feel something other than awe at the artist's talent. I love art that makes me feel something, even if it's as simple as- "this painting makes me feel happy" or "I can feel a lot of energy coming from this one".  That's what I try to accomplish in my own watercolor paintings.  I hope I am succeeding!
