Twinchies - Flowers

These are for a 'Twinchies' swap. The subject was 'Flowers'. I thought I would do my flowers in the style of old Dutch paintings you see. So these are meant to look like little oil painting - on wood panelling. I have embossed parts of them to look like they have been painted in oils.



A peony in full bloom - and yes the lines and scratches are meant to be in these twinches, as its supposed to give the feel of wood panels.

A Morning Glory






Another tulip

And the last Morning Glory

These will all be going to different people - and although some of the images are the same - they are all different when you look at the painting etc.

You have succeeded to give the wooden panel feel...brilliantly inspired. Fabulous range.

I hope you are feeling a bit better...I have the same thing I think...throaty coughy under the weather thing.

Love the wood panel feel - these are all gorgeous but I think the first morning glory one pips the others at the post for me!

Excellent! I love how the textures give dimension to the flower and also how you've done that shading on the petals.
