Yellow Glads

Hi Y'all, this is a painting I've just finished in the last day or so. This one took more time. It's called, simply "Yellow Glads".

Some More Glads

Today I'm posting another gladiola picture. This one is a WIP (Work in Progress) and I know some things I want to do to it. I liked this one because of the backlit thing, as usual, and it does seem to glow! I think that I have a new motto: If it doesn't glow, it doesn't show. Cia

I painted this yesterday. I really like this one, I think I achieved the goal I had of getting these glads to "glow" because of being backlit. I find that backlit lighting is my favorite sometimes. I might do a little more to this but doubt it.

You could say that I'm on a "glad" kick right now. I'm already planning the next one!

This painting is 11 x 15 inches on Arches 140 lb cp paper. I used some watercolor pencils a little bit in some places.

It's called "Backlit White Glads"

I'm Glad!

Seems I have found a new flower to paint! This gladiola seemed to say "paint me!"
So I did. I think it needs some finesse, but here it is.
