“Amaryllis” sketch by Gloria Poole, residing in Missouri but born in state of Georgia, drew this, painted it, signed it, photographed it several times on my drawing board, and uploaded it to this blog of mine today 17 May 2014 at 8:36am. It is mixed media of watercolor and acrylic and is 14 x 17 inches in size on paper. I drew it first, then painted the red blooms with watercolor, then decided the watercolor was too translucent, and didn’t do justice to the gorgeous blooms, so repainted it in acrylic. I always try to stick with about 3 colors of pigments in any sketch or painting because too many give anything a chaotic, not pleasing, confused sort of look. So, I consciously try to design the composition in a way that is aesthetically appealing even if one doesn’t understand what it is, or what is means. I think amaryllis flowers are so beautiful and poinsettias too, but that is because I LOVE the color red. I created a mini-exhibit of art I created with red paint twice on my https://mini-exhibition.blogspot.com, blog and on other blogs of mine also. I also made mini exhibits of the art I created with blue paint on https://artist-gloriapoole.blogspot.com; and art I created with green paint on my :https://gpoole817.blogspot.com and https://gloriapoole-paintings.blogspot.com.
