Japanese Quince and Baby’s Breath Spinea

Almost April? Already? I can’t believe how fast March went by! And because I love my Japanese wall calendar, for this page I got inspired from the March calendar illustration, some beautiful blooming red Japanese Quince flowers. Aproape aprilie? Deja? Nu-mi vine sa cred cat de repede a trecut luna martie!

Drawing Fuchsia Flowers in my art journal - by Cristina Parus @ creativemag.ro >>> Mixed Media and Art Journaling

Fuchsia in Bloom

With about 110 recognized species, Fuchsia flower looks like a ballerina with many legs. It’s gracious and delicate, hanging upside down with its gorgeous coloring. This flower does not serve as wonderful painting and drawing inspiration, but it’s also a bliss for the eyes.

Pentru aceasta floare de lotus am fost inspirata …

Colorful abstract flowers by Cristina Parus @ creativemag.ro

Colorful abstract flowers

This is yet just another way of having fun in your art journal while not worrying at all about the result. These rather abstract flowers can be easily called flower buds as the are still close and don’t reveal the shape of the flower.

And speaking of color, my choice was Caran D’Ache Neocolors 2 for this …

So I thought it would be nice to paint them in my art journal.  Aceasta floare se numeste Diphylleia Grayi si este mai bine cunoscuta ca floare schelet. Aceste flori sunt albe in mod normal, dar devin transparente o data ce picaturile de ploaie le ating petalele. Uimitor, nu-i asa? Asa ca m-am gandit ca …
