Shades of blue

A blue feather watercolor and a few photos at the lake.
Ahhhh, my happy place and my favorite shades of blue for you today.

Happy Sunday!

Blue Blue Feather
Blue feather watercolor – 6×9 inch Bee paper

A wet on wet watercolor painting…
Just a simple feather out of my imagination with lots of yummy blues. πŸ™‚

At one point I really thought this painting was not going to work out but I kept on going. On the last wash I threw caution to the wind and really punched up the blue color. After it dried I was so happy that I did not fuss with it, that is usually where things go wrong for me.

 

Mallard Ducks blue boat reflection

This pair of Mallard ducks out for an evening swim just stole my heart.
The blue reflection from the paddle boat on shore was stunning.

 

Evening lake blues

Sunset views like this just take my breath away.
I couldn’t stay for long enjoying this view. The mosquitoes were out in force and tried to take my phone away and push me in the lake. πŸ˜‰

 

Evening reflection at the lake

The clouds reflecting on the lake were pretty amazing too. ❀

I am so blessed to be able to get away and enjoy this view at the lake from time to time.

Thank you for stopping by and following along. I hope you find time to create art and do something you love. Until next time, have a great week.

Happy Painting!

Calm and Peaceful

Sharing a few calm and peaceful images with you today.

This painting was inspired by an exercise in the lovely Jean Haines’ book, Paint yourself calm. I love the simplicity of this painting.

Jean notes that it is important to enjoy the painting experience and not worry about the outcome. When I am able to let go and do that, it really feels good. πŸ™‚
