Leu Gardens Visit

I recently visited Leu Gardens in Orlando, Florida while on vacation. It was really nice to spend a quiet afternoon in the garden enjoying nature and taking a few photos along the way. I have a few favorites to share with you today. πŸ™‚

 

Lavender in the Garden

So many flowers on the property to enjoy and lots of inspiration for future paintings.

The lavender caught my eye in the herb garden. ❀

I love how the afternoon sun is shining through the cute little picket fence.

Ahh, and another lavender photo but this one is a soft and romantic.

I didn’t note the name of these gorgeous plants but I was lost in the beauty of the day strolling around and having fun with my best friend.

The extraordinary colors, shapes, and textures blew me away…

I am thrilled with how these photos turned out.

Pink Tulips – watercolor

A Spring inspired post for you today with a few watercolor tulips.

Tulips make me a happy girl. ❀  I hope you enjoy them as well . πŸ™‚

Soft Pink Tulip painted on 6 x 9 inch Bee paper.

I love the ruffled petals. When working on the background, I decided to also ruffle the edge of the background colors a bit. I really like how that worked out.

Bright Pink Tulips painted on 6 x 9 inch Bee paper.

The greens and bright pinks work well together. I love that combination.

To create the soft distant tulips, I used the wet on wet technique. I simply wet the paper first with clean water and then while the paper was still wet, painted the general shape of tulips with a wet brush loaded with color. Then I continued dropping in more color to build up different areas.

Watercolor Tips
– Build up color from light to dark

– Always have a tissue handy for those times when you drop too much color or too much water on your paper

– Mix it up and try something different
maybe a bold color, different brush, different paper, or an unusual color choice

I hope you are inspired to create art and do something you love. Thank you for stopping by and following along. Until next time, have a great week. πŸ™‚

Happy Painting!

Tulip – ink and watercolor

Happy Spring!

I have a fun ink and watercolor Tulip to share with you today.

Fellow blogger and talented artist, Jill Kuhn, recently posted a beautiful ink Tulip. I was inspired by Jill’s lovely art and decided to sketch a Tulip and give Zentangle a try. It was fun creating different designs and patterns all over the flower and leaves. I added a splash of watercolor at the end to brighten things up. I’m really happy with the end result. πŸ™‚

You can check out Jill’s blog and beautiful ink Tulip here:Β Jill’s Art Journal
