An abstract painting today inspired by artist Jean Haines.

Happy Thursday!Β πŸ˜€

willow watercolor painting

Abstract willow – 9 x 12 inch watercolor

I’ve been practicing and playing with color. I imagined a different result for this painting, something a little less abstract. Instead of trying to change where things were going, I just let it be.

I’m glad I did that, what a nice surprise.Β  πŸ’™πŸ’œ

Until next time, share a smile and shine on.

Happy Painting!

Looking back

Looking through some of my earlier work, I ran across this watercolor and ink painting. A sweet little scene of a family enjoying time at the beach.

Happy Thursday friends! 😊

Lavender watercolor revisited

Another lavender watercolor to share with you today.

Happy Sunday, friends!Β πŸ˜ŠπŸ’œ

 

lavender field watercolor landscape

9 x 12 inch Lavender Bliss

Wet on wet technique with a limited color palette:

Daniel Smith Cobalt Teal Blue, French Ultramarine, and Quinacridone Rose

Brushes used:Β  Round 14, Round 12, and Liner 2

Oh how I love these colors together. I was able to get a nice range of purples by mixing my own. I think the variety adds some interest and it just makes me happy.

Color mixing tip: French Ultramarine and Quinacridone Rose were used to mix different shades of purple. It’s as simple as changing the amount of each color to create a nice variety.

I hope you are inspired to create art and do what you love. Thank you for stopping by and following me on this creative journey. Until next time, share a smile and have a great week.

Happy Painting!Β πŸ’œ

Happy Painting!
