Blue Cornflowers

My second bottle was inspired by beds of blue cornflowers swaying in the breeze, a familiar sight every spring if you happen to visit any of the parks.

I especially enjoyed doing the typical shape of the petals that give this flower its distinct identity.

And here is a close-up of the just-starting-to-open flower. I used some subtle glitter to do the details of the leaves.

Hope to get back to some painting after this brush with bottle art. Keep checking back for more!

Thanks, Yuvika & AJ.

AJ, the funny part is even when I'm dead tired or feeling oh-so-lazy, I perk up at the very thought of doing this stuff. It doesn't seem like hard work at all :)
