Trying hard

Today I have been trying hard to do these flowers. The first 2 are lilies and I know what is wrong with them now when I look at the pictures. The yellow lily, I seemed to have ended up giving all the petals the same colour whereas in the real flower the outer petals were much lighter in shade. Also the petals are not long enough the same it the case with the second lily too. Also I seemed to have over worked on the lily. The last one is supposed to be an orchid which doesn't look like one lol! I think sometimes it is a good thing to take a picture of your art work and look at it in the computer as we can spot where we are going wrong looking at it from the outside.


  1. Oh more beautiful watercoloured flowers... these are amazing Shashi :)

    I'm afraid I can't take credit for the flowers on my last post they were Joannes cross stitch designs but thank you for the compliment :D

  2. Shashi, I think you are making real progress. I find yellow flowers are always a challenge (well, yellow anything, really!) and I knew that last picture was an orchid straight away, before I read your post. I like the lines on the bottom petal. I often look at my pics on the computer before I finish with them too - holding it up and looking at it in a mirror has a similar effect.

  3. I agree- seeing my work in progress in a photo helps me see what I need to fix or add. But all your flowers look gorgeous to me- maybe the flaws in our work are only noticable to us-LOL! I especially love the last one.

    I haven't been able to find that pretty plant you told me the name of recently. I will have to search on line and maybe I can order it.

  4. I love the orchid and and also the one from your last post, I just noticed they are both orchids, both are very pretty and like Linda, I don't see anything wrong with them. I know what you mean about looking at your work on the computer, when I do progress pictures, I find all kinds of thing wrong with my creations and then go back and fix them if I can.

  5. Shashi, your art work is wonderful! My favorite is the last one too..

  6. C'est super super beau!!! Tu es vraiment très forte!
    Gros bisous
