More Watercolors

I've been busy painting up a storm.  I've never really had anyone ask me to paint them a picture (except for art teachers) and so even though it's my aunt, I've still been nervous about the whole thing.  Probably unnecessarily, but I always get nervous to give people things that I've made, especially if they've offered to pay, cause I guess I feel like I'm not that good.  I need stop comparing myself to my father and grandmother (who were amazing artists and Watercolorist)  everyone has their own style and although mine is similar, it's not like theirs and I suppose I see that as a flaw.  Anyways these paintings in this post are what I've done so far.  She wanted something similar to the one my Dad had done and in the red, orange and yellow color family.  

Here is the one my Dad did:

Here are mine:

  11. I think all your floral paintings are beautiful. It's hard not to compare yourself to someone else, but surely what your aunt wants is two paintings by people she she loves, no matter what the differences in style.

  34. They are all beautiful...I especially like the red poppies towards the bottom that you did. You have your style which is different than that of your fathers, so you can't really compare the two... :)
