Flowers on the Canvas

I found this artist by the name of Jan Ironside who is from the USA.  She creates these very heavy Impasto styled paintings that make the petals of her flower paintings feel like they are going to come off of the page.  I also love her colors, but what do you think?





What do you think about these?  I know some of you are not fans of flowers but what other things could you paint with this technique that would feel as life like as her flowers?

  12. I like this idea a lot. I love the way this artist makes their work come to life. The colors seem just a little too dull for me. But it's also very great and probably seeing these in real life would probably be more entertaining. I think that anything in nature could be used in this technique.

  17. i hate drawing flowers. i hate this type of art because it is so hard to find the dark areas for shading. i hate this and i never want to do it again

  18. i think these are so cool. But with all that paint i wonder how long it would take for the paint to try, considering how much she used. Also i love how the colors work on the petals by blending. I would most likely make a mess from this and i would haveto pay alot for more paint

  19. i think it has a cool aspect to it. it would be more fun if you could draw your own thing and not flowers. it would be very tough to do, but look very cool in the end.

  23. i think it is pretty cool it uses alot of spring type colors to make it seem better i think if it used darker colors it wouldnt be as good. i think it looks cool even though i dont know what the style is. but if they can have fun and make a good living i say let them do it.

  26. I like these paintings, the petals look real they just pop out at you. The colors are very vibrant and look really pretty, the pink flower is my favorite. The paint looks very thick, the pink flower reminds me of frosting, makes me hungry. I like how she can paint flowers and turn it into something really pretty like that.

  41. I like how the texture of these paintings. It looks like it would take them a really long to dry though. I think it would be fun to try making a piece of artwork like this.

  42. These are really beautiful paintings. I love the colors and technique used to create them. It would probably be a lot of fun to try and create a piece of artwork like this.

  43. I like how she makes the flowers stand out! This would be really cool, but I don't think that I have the patience to do that.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I think that this type of art is very cool. I like how they used the materials to make flowers. I hope we dont do it tho because school is almost over.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I really like the painting. The texture on it makes it pop out and i really hope we can do this.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I like painting flowers, and this technique really makes the flowers look realistic. it would also be a good way to paint trees or maybe even water. i would really like to try this way of painting.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I absolutely love this artwork. I wish I could do something as realistic as this. You could probably paint some leaves with the same technique.

    ReplyDelete
  48. i love this artwork. i wish we would do this in class. the flowers look beautiful

    ReplyDelete
  49. I think these pictures are outstanding and would take a lot of time. You could do many different types of things. You are basically trying to make them look 3D.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I really like the 3D effect of these flowers. They seem like they would be really hard to do but also really fun to do

    ReplyDelete
  51. I love the 3D of this art! I cannot see myself making something so beautiful, but I love the unique factors about it!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I personally like these flowers and the technique that they used. The artist uses a 3d effect. I would probably never try one of these even though it is cool.

    ReplyDelete
  53. This looks like the designs that those professional bakers put on cakes and cupcakes. It is really bizarre, but if I saw this in real life I would eat it....

    ReplyDelete
  54. i like all the colors they made out the the 3D art it would be cool to do something like this

    ReplyDelete
  55. I think this so cute, but i'd get pretty frustrating after awhile. I think there pretty though. We should do this in class.

    ReplyDelete
  56. The flowers are really beautiful. They came out really colorful and bright. Looking at them reminds me of spring and warm weather. The technique used was really cool and different

    ReplyDelete
  57. Mehh. Technique seems a little cheesy to me. Vibrant colors though!

    ReplyDelete
  58. This is a pretty cool technique. I honestly don't really like the flowers. It is a great way to shade with the thicker layers of paint. I don't think that I would be very good at this though.

    ReplyDelete
  59. this a different, but cool technique. it looks cool how the petals are, even though i would rather not have flowers. im sure this would take lots of talent, especially to get the right strokes

    ReplyDelete
  60. I think that this is a very poppy painting. It is 3D and allows it to make its own shadows to add dimension. I think that the colors are beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  61. i really like this it is really nice and colorful i would have liked to do something like that this year.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I use pure oil paint and a palette knife . Dry to the touch 3 months, completely dry one year. I have tried acrylic just could get the depth. Thanks for noticing. Jan Ironside Art and Sixth Street Studio facebook. :)

  63. The texture is so realistic it seems like I could feel it. It would be cool to paint the ocean with this style, but the flowers look cool too.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I'm not a huge fan of this type of art because there's no real skill to it. Anyone could make that if they had that type of paint, I think doing grass or something in front of a picture would look cool with this.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I absolutely love the way the flowers come off the page. I've always wanted to try this method but I feel like it would take a lot of paint. Theses are very beautiful and maybe a mountain scene would look cool
