Looking forward to Spring

I’ve been thinking about Spring and decided to paint some tulips.

Hope your day is wonderful. πŸ’š

Magenta tulips – inspired by the beauties in my yard. I can’t wait to seem them again this Spring.

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

Until next time, share a smile and shine on!

Pretty Peonies Watercolor

I have a pretty floral to share with you today.

Happy Sunday, friends! πŸ’œ

Pretty Peonies – 9 x 12 inch watercolor sketchbook


A little watercolor practice painting Peonies and leaves.

This floral came together rather quickly. I started in the center with the larger flowers and worked my way out. I layered playful leaves to add movement and fill in space all around the Peonies.

A rather short post today… I’m trying to get used to this new block editor. 😊

I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love. Until next time, share a smile and stay excellent!

Potted Flowers – Collage Art

I had fun working on a collage piece this week. Hope these joyful flowers bring you a smile.

Happy Sunday, friends! πŸ’š

working on collage idea

I started out playing with an idea using pieces of recycled cards, scrapbook paper, and watercolor paintings.

I arranged my cut shapes to create a few flowers. Then decided on including a flower pot…

For the flower pot, I used a clothing catalog to cut out a few rectangle shapes. I added some pretty gold craft tape for a nice edge on the pot.

A little close up… just love those button centers!

I really enjoy creating with collage and this was a fun piece to put together.

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

Until next time, share a smile and shine on!

Flowering tree with ink doodles

I just love a flowering tree and today I have one to share with you. 🌼🌸

Happy Sunday, friends! πŸ’š

It started with the simple idea of painting a tree… and so out came the watercolors.

 

watercolor tree under painting

A playful tree full of swirls became my under painting. I decided on a rainbow of colors for this one.

When I finished I set the painting aside for a while. I like to think about the sketching a little before diving in. That happens quite often.Β  πŸ˜‰

 

flowering tree watercolor and ink doodles

I started playing with different flower doodles and added with some leaves. I really like the contrast of the loud flowers on top with the quiet playful flowers falling to the ground.

Although this piece is really all about the flowers, I love the color and texture of the tree trunk.

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

Until next time, share a smile and stay excellent!

Flowers and birds always make me happy.Β  I hope they brighten your day as well.

I will probably cut back to one blog post a week for a while. I need to slow down a little but I will continue to paint and sketch. You can find me (and hopefully follow me) on Instagram at pattyanneart.

Until next time, take care and be well!
