252 - CAMELIA DESIGN - DAVE EDWARDS - ACRYLIC - 2009 by 


I put aside my coloured pencils to do this one in acrylic paint (as indicated in the title).

As I have mentioned before, I rarely copy photographs as they are. I use the photograph as a diving board into the pool of my imagination.

I’d like to thank Kristina K. for giving me permission to use this photo of hers and I hope she isn’t too disappointed with what I did with it.

THIS WAS FEATURED BY #1 ARTISTS OF REDBUBBLE (8th April 2009)

camelia, blythart

I am a retired man who enjoys expressing himself in pencils and paints. I have had two solo exhibitions in my home town and I love Redbubble. I get as much pleasure from viewing the works of other artists as from creating my own.

    I think Kristina will be very pleased!!! Beautiful work Dave, I love the deep saturation of color and the patterns!!

  • I just uploaded it a few minutes ago and already the Acrylics group has rejected it without any reason, despite eleven other groups accepting it. I thought it was okay actually.

    That is crazy….I am telling you Dave….they want you to put that it is done in acrylics over in the description. I bet they didn’t even read the title! It almost looks like it was done in colored pencil.

  • I’m friendly with Helene Ruiz of Acrylics Group, and I know she likes my work, so I have asked her if she can find out why this was rejected. I know she personally wouldn’t have rejected it.

  • Helene Ruiz saved the day for me … it had been a mistake.

    Really creative interpretation of a beautiful flower!
    It looks like a camelia to me, with those shiny leaves – but whatever it is – it’s lovely! :))

  • Many thanks for drawing my attention to that. I have altered the title. And thanks for your nice comment.

    Well I like it Dave.

  • According to Helene, they might have rejected it because I didn’t use the word “acrylic” in the description box, although I used it in the title. She asked me to try again.

  • It’s been added to the Acrylics Group now, thanks to Helene.

    I’m glad it worked out, and hey a feature already too!!! Hey, if you didn’t see this yet Contest you should enter!

  • I was taught to obey women (only joking) so I have entered. My entry is sincere but maybe not the flowery poetry you were looking for ;)
