I have a few recent paintings to share today inspired by nature’s beautiful gifts.
Happy Sunday, friends! 💚
A sweet little birdie watercolor with just a touch of ink.
Watercolor floral with my favorite soft spring colors.
Flowers and birds always make me happy. 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.
A little floral painting for you today as I’m thinking of Spring.
Happy Thursday friends! 😊
I love the combination of pinks and greens together in this painting. 💗
Supplies used watercolor paper 140 lb.
watercolor brushes, round 12, liner 2, and dagger 1/4″
Daniel Smith: 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.
– Allowing the paint to mix and mingle on the paper creates some nice results.
– 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.
A Spring inspired post for you today with a few watercolor tulips.
Tulips make me a happy girl. ❤ I hope you enjoy them as well . 🙂
Soft Pink Tulip painted on 6 x 9 inch Bee paper.
I love the ruffled petals. When working on the background, I decided to also ruffle the edge of the background colors a bit. I really like how that worked out.
Bright Pink Tulips painted on 6 x 9 inch Bee paper.
The greens and bright pinks work well together. I love that combination.
To create the soft distant tulips, I used the wet on wet technique. I simply wet the paper first with clean water and then while the paper was still wet, painted the general shape of tulips with a wet brush loaded with color. Then I continued dropping in more color to build up different areas.
– Build up color from light to dark
– Always have a tissue handy for those times when you drop too much color or too much water on your paper
– Mix it up and try something different
maybe a bold color, different brush, different paper, or an unusual color choice
I hope you are inspired to create art and do something you love. Thank you for stopping by and following along. Until next time, have a great week. 🙂
