A little fun today with a watercolor from last year and a few more recent paintings.
Happy Sunday, friends! 💚
Looking back to a tree that I painted last November. 😀
This happy tree was painted on 7 x 10 inch Arches cold pressed watercolor paper. This paper has a nice texture and can handle a lot of water. It was fun to let the colors mix and mingle on the paper to create some nice shades and soft blending.
Leave some white space in the tree foliage and let the color of the sky peek through here and there.
A more recent watercolor floral – simple and delicate
This was painted on 7 x 10 inch Canson mixed media paper.
I considered adding some ink sketching but later decided to just stop here and leave this one as is.
Fuschia – 9 x 12 inch Canson Mixed Media
I’ve gone back and forth about whether to share this painting or not. The flowers could use more work but I decided that the leaves and buds are worth sharing. Their soft colors and lovely shapes just pull me in and are a nice contrast to the bold blooms.
I hope your 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 little landscape practice with an exercise from Zoltan Szabo’s book, 70 Favorite Watercolor Techniques.
Happy Sunday! 🙂
Beyond the Meadow – 9 x 12 inch Bee watercolor paper
The flowering tree in this landscape caught my eye. It looked like a good exercise to practice painting trees using the wet on wet technique so I decided to give it a try.
While painting the distant trees I reminded myself to leave enough white space for the flowering tree in the foreground. I was pleasantly surprised with the depth that I was able to achieve with this landscape and how quickly it all came together.
It feels calm and peaceful, I love that. 🙂
I hope you enjoy seeing my work and are inspired to create art and do what you love. Thank you for stopping by and following along. Until next time, share a smile and have a great week.
