Bluebird and Tulips watercolor

I recently painted a vase full of pretty tulips and a sweet little bluebird. I always love painting flowers and birds. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Red Tulip – 7 x 10 inch watercolor

I also painted a single red tulip in my sketchbook. This simple tulip makes me happy. I can feel the movement of the leaves and love that bold red color.

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.ย  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!

Pink Lily watercolor doodle

I have a fun watercolor and ink doodle to share today.

Happy Thursday, friends! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’š

Pink Lily watercolor underpaintingย 

A few of my favorite things to paint…flowers and leaves.

I used a big round #12 brush for my watercolor underpainting. Then the decision was to keep painting adding more detail or stop painting and proceed later with ink.

I decided to go forward with ink sketching using a Micron pen.

Pink Lilies – 12 x 18 inch

I like how the ink wakes up the flowers and the doodles add a little extra fun.

I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love. Thank you for stopping by and following me on this creative journey.

Until next time, share a smile and shine on!

Soft floral watercolor and supplies

A soft pink floral to share today and a view of my painting supplies.

Happy Thursday, friends! ๐Ÿ˜Š

spring flowers watercolor painting

I used a Micron pen to draw a few lines as a base for my floral vines.

I have a serious color crush on the combination of quinacridone rose and yellow ochre. It creates this lovely peachy pink shade. I couldn’t resist and once again had to use it in this painting. ๐Ÿ’—

Now on to my supplies… (well used and quite messy)ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

watercolor brushes on bunnies

These chop stick holders are great for propping up my brushes.

I love my little bunnies, they are so cute! ๐Ÿฐ

 

watercolor supplies

I use two watercolor palettes and an additional mixing tray.ย  My watercolor paints are a combination of both Winsor & Newton and Daniel Smith brands.

Princeton watercolor brushes are my favorite and I have been slowly replacing my old brushes with them.

Thank you for stopping by and following me on this creative journey.

Until next time, share a smile and shine on!

Thinking of Spring

A little floral painting for you today as I’m thinking of Spring.

Happy Thursday friends!ย ๐Ÿ˜Š

spring blooms watercolor

I love the combination of pinks and greens together in this painting. ๐Ÿ’—

Supplies used
watercolor paper 140 lb.
watercolor brushes, round 12, liner 2, and dagger 1/4″

Watercolors
Daniel Smith:ย  green gold, permanent green, quinacridone magenta, quinacridone rose, and yellow ochre
Winsor & Newton: cerulean blue

Using the wet on wet technique, I painted shapes in clean water first then dropped in wet paint. The dagger brush was used to make some nice leaf shapes. I left white space on many leaves and didn’t fuss with the shapes.

Tips
–ย  Allowing the paint to mix and mingle on the paper creates some nice results.
–ย  Keep a tissue on hand for those times when you drop too much water on your paper.

I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love. Thank you for stopping by and following me on this creative journey.

Until next time, share a smile and shine on!
