Lilacs - EDM 99 New Year's Goals


Lilacs

I've been spending a lot of thought-time on my art goals for 2007. Here's one of them -- to sketch looser using more transparency and 'light.' I want more of my sketches to have a painterly look -- somewhere between the details I crave and the looseness of Charles Reid.

Lovely lilacs! Yep, you are keeping the loose look and I LOVE the deep pigments on this!!

The lilac itself borders on abstract! Now that's a neat effect. My eye is also drawn to the bottom of the vase, which you kept light -- hmmm, very nice!

Gorgeous color Lin. I could see you heading toward this goal for awhile and you are really making progress.

I agree, you have made such amazing progress this year! My prediction is Charles Reid will be outdone by the end of January :)!!

These are quite lovely, Lin. And yes, I agree, Charles Reid is grand, and don't you love his loose style? This is a whole lot more confident and free than when you started, aren't you pleased with it?
