Watercolor landscape squares

I had fun playing and painting watercolor landscape squares this week.

I was inspired by the beautiful work and creativity of fellow blogger and friend Jill Kuhn. I love her November Square-A-Day landscapes and decided to try a few squares.

Happy Thursday, friends! 💙

I started by taping off a few sections in my watercolor sketchbook.

My plan was to keep it simple and limit each square to a just a few colors.

Daniel Smith watercolors used:  Sap Green, Pthalo Blue, and Carbazole Violet
Brush used: Round #12

This was a fun way to play and work on ideas for future paintings. Although a large part of this exercise was about trying different color combinations, I was reminded how important it is to leave some unpainted areas. Leaving a little white of the paper adds interest and also a little sparkle.

I hope you are inspired to create art and have fun.

Until next time, share a smile and stay excellent! 😊
