Sketch of Anthurium Flowers, October 23 Art Sketches Daily...



Here is a sketch of three anthurium flowers.  There's something very compelling to me about anthuriums, I've painted a couple of large paintings of them.  I also have a little anthurium in my room; although I don't think it will ever bloom, I love the leaves...  I'm unsure if I'll paint these or not, but I did enjoy sketching them.


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in October.  This is day 23.  

This is a rough sketch.  You may see some of my finished paintings at lisarusso.com if you'd like.  I did take some pictures at the show, I'll post them when I get a chance, it was a very nice opening.  

I am also participating in Sunday Sketches.  To view more Sunday Sketches, please visit:

Thanks very much Valerie-Jael, Christine, Martin, Paula, carol, and Linda. Yes, these are based on some of the red ones, but I'm not sure if I have room on my plate for these ones right now. I do love anthuriums though and I've done a couple of other paintings featuring them...

I'm glad you like them, I don't think I will be doing these at this point, but maybe sometime in the future...

What lovely anthurium flowers. They remind me a little of calla lilies. Are they in the same area of flowers? Either or, very pretty. I would love to see these painted. :)

Thanks Alexandra, I've done a couple of anthurium flower paintings, they are lovely flowers. I'm not sure if they're related, but they seem like they would be...
