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! 💚

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!

Soft floral watercolor and ink

I had fun playing with another floral watercolor and ink painting this week.

Happy Sunday, friends! 🧡soft floral watercolor under painting

My under painting was the start. I added some floral shapes using soft colors.

No stressing about the perfect shape here, just looking for a nice variety of petals.

Melody of Petals – 11 x 15 inch

My goal was to stay playful and keep the detail light and fun.

Sometimes I used the ink to build up the underlying watercolor shapes. Other times,  I ignored the shapes and just sketched flowers and buds wherever I wanted.

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

Until next time, share a smile and shine on!

Dogwood inspired watercolor

Today I have a watercolor inspired by the flowering Dogwood tree in my yard.

Happy Thursday, friends! 💚

 

Dogwood watercolor under painting

7 x 10 inch watercolor under painting

I started with a painting of pretty petals and leaves. No details needed at this point, that will come later with the ink sketching. The loose watercolor provides a nice base for the ink sketch.

I love that peachy pink, as I’ve said before I have a serious #colorcrush on that combination. 😉

A little sketching with a Sepia micron pen provides the needed floral detail.

I like that the fine tip Sepia doesn’t overpower this piece. I also used a white gel pen for just a few highlights here and there.

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

Until next time, share a smile and stay excellent!

Painting Spring crocuses

I have Spring crocuses to share with you today. I love these cheerful flowers and hope they brighten your day.  😀

Happy Thursday, friends! 💜

Crocus watercolor painting

I was inspired by the mini crocuses blooming in my yard. These tiny yellow and purple flowers brought me much joy when they arrived this Spring.

Using my large round #14 brush, I painted in a very loose wet on wet watercolor style.
