Shades of White Watercolor

 

Hello Friends!

Yesterday I practiced using different strengths of only two watercolors: Ivory Black and Paynes Grey, which has a tint of blue in it.

I found a different picture in my book about Degas which is one of several versions of pastel/charcoal drawings he did called “Woman combing her hair.”

I am really enjoying becoming ambidextrous! It is quite fun!

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😁

 

 

Degas Watercolor

 

Hello Friends!

Yesterday, I decided to try painting in watercolor with my nondominant hand. So I chose to do this detail of Degas’s painting called “Combing the hair” which is enlarged in my book called “Degas-Beyond Impressionism” by Richard Kendall.

It felt so great to paint again! I felt refreshed.

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😀

 

 

Portrait of a Girl

 

Hello Friends!

I am so excited that I completed this in about a half hour! I watched Ivy Newport do a portrait class called “Into the Blue” where she talks about Pablo Picasso’s “blue” period. I have to say that I had to trace the outline, though, because I couldn’t get her proportions right otherwise. Believe me…I tried!

I used a couple of watercolor pencils and some charcoal with water for this. I also did most of the painting with my nondominant hand! Anyway, I thought she was a beautiful Chinese girl when I printed this out a few years ago. I added most of her hat myself.

I have not begun any abstract painting yet…still reading the book. But I have some things in mind.

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😀

 

Donkeys in Pen & Watercolor

 

Hello Friends!

Yesterday I painted this watercolor of the donkeys. Today I outlined it in pen. This was a fun one to do!

I hope everyone is having a nice week!

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😀

Goats in Watercolor

Hello Friends!

Today I decided to paint a mama goat and her baby. This was a lot of fun and didn’t take long. I really enjoyed painting in watercolor again.

We are getting cooler weather this week which is nice. I hope everyone had a nice weekend.

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug. 😀

 

Great Horned Owlet and Mama

Hello Friends!

The other day my husband took this picture down by the office of the fish hatchery where we live. So he printed it out for me and I decided to paint it in watercolors.

He liked the way the owlet looked like it was scowling!

I have a series of flower paintings I am planning to do in mixed media. I have some of them drawn in pencil which I will post soon. I’m really looking forward to doing this spring flower series!

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 🙂

 

Sea Turtle Watercolor

Hello Friends!

I painted this new Australian Flatback sea turtle quite a while back but completely forgot about it! I just found it and realized I hadn’t shared it yet! Silly me. 😊

I don’t have a name for this one so if you feel so inclined, have at it!

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😀

 

Tulips in Watercolor

Hello Friends!

Yesterday I did some fun art exercises from an online class I am in. Then I decided to paint some tulips which is one of the types of flowers we are doing. It was a stormy afternoon while I was painting which was exhilarating! I was also listening to opera!

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😀

 

Bunny Buddies in Watercolor

Hello Friends! 

Here is my second attempt at a bunny watercolor. I say “attempt,” because I am not that crazy about this one either. I tried the same poses, just switched around. So I think I want to just draw ONE rabbit and give it a more whimsical expression. So we’ll see what I come up with. I think this animal would be easier for me in a profile position and maybe just the head! Ha, ha.

Well, it is a gorgeous spring day here today. It has still been staying cool enough to leave the windows open at night which I always love doing in the spring and fall.

I have been working on some ideas for another mixed media project. I have cut out some things from some old paintings that I want to use in a unique way. I just want to think about it some more.

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend, and if you have the desire, do something creative! It’s fun!

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😀
