Painting with a large flat brush

It’s starting to feel like Fall and I am loving it. This is my favorite time of year.

I’ve been busy getting ready for a very special bridal shower next weekend but found time to do a little painting. ๐ŸŒฟ

Botanical Blues - large brush watercolor

Botanical Blues 9 x 12 inch

I used a large 1″ flat brush for this painting. The paper is mixed media and pretty smooth. I like the simplicity and color combination.

This is a similar style painting from last year on Arches cold press watercolor paper. I was able to achieve some nice texture with this one. Paper choice does make a difference.

Fall mums on the deck

Some pretty Fall mums to add some cheer to this post and my deck.

Pretty buds up close

Hello beautiful buds!

A little close up with my iPhone. The colors and shapes are so inspiring. So many clusters of tiny flowers getting ready to sing and dance.

I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love.

Until next time, share a smile and shine on!

Looking back at artwork from last year

I was looking back through my work and found a few pieces from last year that I wanted to share with you today.

Happy Thursday, friends! ๐Ÿ’š

 

leaf doodle sketch

As the leaves are falling all around, I thought it was a good time to share this little leaf doodle. I’m not sure why I didn’t post this one last year. ๐Ÿ˜‰

watercolor pinecones

Pinecone trio… A little fun playing with color in this one.

I think some unexpected colors can make things more interesting. ๐Ÿ’™

 

falling leaves watercolor

Another fall painting from last year. I love the green gold color in these watercolor leaves.

It’s always fun to look back at earlier work. I’m sure today I would make different creative decisions but I still really like theses pieces. I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love.

Until next time, share a smile and stay excellent!
