I just had to share this today.
There’s not enough sun at this time of the year and wouldn’t it be lovely to have one of these wonderful acrylics to remind us that spring is round the corner and yes, the sun will shine again.
Erica Eriksdotter is a Scandinavian living and working just outside of Washington DC and I particularly love her close-ups of flowers.
She achieves this bold, bright effect by starting with a thin diluted layer of paint and then adds many layers until she is satisfied.
She then adds the detail by highlighting some areas more than others.
I just had to add a pink one!
She also does commissions such as this beautiful bridal bouquet.
Aren’t they beautiful?
