HOW TO PAINT COLORFUL FLOWERS IN ABSTRACT AND INK


Abstract art flower paintings are always an appeal to me. The difference in this particular series, are my choice of background colors.


 The colors, I chose for the backgrounds of all the art, in this series is similar and vivid in its representation.

                                           Sponsored


 I created contrast between the flower paintings and the backgrounds to show some kind of depth, between the two.


 All the floral paintings represent flowers I have photographed, seen or planted in my small back garden.


 Flowers never fail to present itself as a medium of Joy, life, love and happiness and in this series, I try to evoke some of the realities attached to flowers.


 My illustrations are simple and have morphed from pen and ink drawings to abstract art my favorite genre in fine art.


When I draw and paint flowers, I always keep in mind my audience first and what would appeal to their innermost senses.

 I ask myself questions like what flower arrangement would they like? what combination of colors do they gravitate to? and what kinds of flowers or plants are most loved? by everyone, including children.

Then I start by visiting the florist store, garden shops and then read what's new or hot, in the flower and plant world.



 I also check out interior decor publications, to see what's the new flower craze and how it is incorporated into the whole interior decor scheme. 


I check out colors of flowers and juxtapose them on different shades and colors of cardboard, then I pick my color shades.This series is made on smooth paperboards to allow the Ink flow the size are all the same, 50cmx30cm.

That was how I created this art, because my entire art philosophy is color driven.



 I love color, I use a lot of it and I am not afraid of experimenting with primary colors at its purest, as you can see, the colors are not tinted or diluted they are straight out of the Ink bottle unto the paper and left to dry for 3-5 days. 



'Art is the Way I See It' I always say that and indeed I put that to practice in all my works, I hope these paintings bring you Joy, Happiness and love the way they were intended to........Enjoy.

SPRING EDITION! ART | GIFT | HOME DECORATING. BY MIABO ENYADIKE


There is no secret, that I just adore flowers and plants. This love for flowers is baked in my Art aesthetics. I love to draw, paint and illustrate flowers the way I see them. 


Most of my illustrations of flowers and plants are created with Ink and watercolor because it is the medium I love to paint with. 


Color matters a lot, in my flower paintings and I express them in abstracts, still life and contemporary styles. 
This edition of products that I have designed, reflects my affiliation to nature and its influence on my Art. 

I termed this collection of flower paintings, my spring collection because this is spring, and there are so many lovely flowers springing up around us in our homes and surroundings.

   **************** 
                          My Story 






Flowers always brings a silent message with it, as a present, a gift, a painting or even on a product and that message is very simple and subtle in nature yet loving, caring, comforting and classy.


 "I know the feeling, you know the feeling we all know the feeling, when we are in the presence of beautiful flowers".....Miabo Enyadike.




When I painted the the purple flower, I knew it would be nice on products, that people use often and are familiar with.

The calmness of the purple pansies I painted with Ink on paperboard, was a simple homage to spring time in Johannesburg, where I live.


I love the fact that this simple floral art of mine can be shared with everyone..

FLOWERS IN MY PEN GARDEN. PEN AND INK FLOWER DRAWINGS: ART BY MIABO ENYADIKE


 FLOWERS IN MY PEN GARDEN  

FLOWER ART  BY MIABO ENYADIKE.



Tulip flowers in a Vase: Pen and Ink: Drawing: 30cmx30cm: Miabo Enyadike


Drawing with a pen is another form of art I indulge in once a while. It is truly relaxing, but a little tricky.

Everything you need to quilt and sew at Shop.MyBluprint.com The good thing though, is this is for someone like me, who is hands-on, restless and free-spirited. A little bit of something dainty to work on keeps me grounded and I love that.


When I found this book in a flea market, it had all these wonderful gorgeous flowers in it, I knew I had to have it. 


Tulips: Pen and Ink: Drawing: 25cmx30cm: Miabo Enyadike

The thought of drawing them in black and white was appealing to me, then came interpreting my thoughts about each flower on paper.

I used a black ink pen and that to me was daunting especially after several mistakes.
                                                       
Daffodils: Pen and Ink: Drawing: 20cmx30cm: Miabo Enyadike


Finally, I cracked the code 'PATIENCE AND RESPECT' for the plant!.
This meant I had to read about each flower, I had selected to draw, let's be clear I hate biology.

Then I had to see them in real life, which meant going from one flower store to another.    
                                          
I knew I was, wearing down the salespeople with questions, and not buying flowers from the store after all that questioning, was really annoying to the salesperson.

Aster: Pen and Ink: Drawing: 30cmx30cm: Miabo Enyadike

It did not matter. I was on a quest, and a few angry looks were not going to put me off.

 I was going to draw these flowers ,they were important to me and I love a challenge.

I eventually got all the information I needed, sat down, night after night and drew these flowers, just the way I saw them in my mind.

My interest in flowers stems from my love for natures colors and beauty.                                                                                                         
flowers are part of nature and so they form part of our natural habitat and the presence of flowers and the subtle message, it brings with its calm beauty cannot be overemphasized...... Enjoy.
