I've just checked my emails before going to bed after a looooong fun but tiring day out and what a surprise! Michelle has already received the painting I sent her for this month's swap, that was fast for sure and I'm so glad she liked it, I've been admiring her florals for a long time so I was excited and afraid at the same time I guess.
This is what I sent
What I like about it is that it gave me the chance of playing around with so many different hues of blue since I never ever use it as the main character in my paintings, I loved the reference photo I used (by macdragon user at WetCanvas RIL) and even if it had more purplish hues I wanted to try it "bluer", don't know why. What I don't like about it is that I don't really know how to use so many blues combined, I'm not used to it, and I had a lot of trouble trying to get deep dark blues that wouldn't look dead, somehow I ended with those big splotches of thick blue paint at the dark dark areas that I don't really like, but other than that it's been fun to paint it and play.
Now all I have to do is wait for my own secret partner's painting to arrive, is it monday already???
