The earliest depictions of flowers dates back to the Old Kingdom (~2500 BCE) and the earliest evidence of the collecting of flowers in bouquets is demonstrated in the archeological finds of ancient vases. It’s a motif that’s been around a long time in art. And it’s still going strong.
I painted this 16 x 20 inch bouquet yesterday using acrylic paints, a medium that I haven’t used in a long time. Taking it up again is a blast. I love it.
So you should walk like an Egyptian, think like an Egyptian and paint flowers like an Egyptian. You can even listen to the song while you’re painting. Ay oh whey oh.
