Day 30 - 30 in 30

Ask about larger Originals in the same series or Prints of this ACEO. To view my Gallery or purchase this painting please visit Daily Paintworks.

This painting is SOLD but I'm happy to take a commission for a similar work. Contact me to inquire about prints and Art cards. 

This signature "Essence" painting induces relaxation and peace. 

Organdy is closer to abstract/ impressionism than most of my florals. I called it "Organdy" because the multiple layers give the effect of a ball gown with many layers of transparent fabric. I've added silver and bronze iridescent paint to enhance the impression of floating on air.

This painting is for day 30 of Leslie Saeta's 30 paintings in 30 days. However, as I started a few days late I also painted "Love is in the Air" which will publish on February 1st and "Evermore" which will publish on the February 2nd, so I can truly say I completed the challenge in the allotted time.

I am also sending out another blog today with a fantastic opportunity and challenge for Artists so "Follow by Email" on the right  to read the exciting news. 

Tip: To get this effect allow the acrylic to dry between layers. Use the colours like watercolour washes.

I welcome comments below. If you have a challenge posting use Anonymous but please put your byline.
