My First Pansy's

Well....it's finally done or almost. Sorry that picture doesn't show the colors correctly.

For the placement of the pansy's I loosely followed a pattern by Marlene Stevens and added the Gold stroke work by Joyce Morrison. I added and removed bits and pieces until I hope it is balanced. I am going to go back and change the lines work on the top to match the bottom-don't like the reverse angle. It is painted on Roc Lon.

Pansy's....I learned a lot about Pansy's!!!! I tried for lighter colors and they just walked off the banner. I just have to learn how to do it better.

DH want to hang it in the house instead of outside in his Pansy Garden.

Belle, I couldn't get it to enlarge but from what I can see they look pretty darn good. I love the cut out Roc Lon. I haven't tried painting on that yet but maybe later in the year. Great job.

Gosh! When I proofed the post it enlarged, but not now!

Here it is larger. I have also removed the lines in the top part, I tried them going the same direction as the bottom area but didn't like that either.....like the open space better. I also lightened the brown on the right side, much softer now. DH just keep saying, "Leave It Alone!"

Taking pictures really help see things differently.

My goodness, Belle, that is lovely. Very regal looking with all the gold. I think you did wonderful on your pansies. Sure would be a pretty design for a dresser scarf or table runner too. You did good, gal. ;o)

You did a great job on that! Don't touch it again unless it is to hang it. You know, we are usually our own worst critic. Vique.
