Watercolor over crayon on the vases. Watercolor and pen for the blooms. Digital splatter on the 13th. The colors look more neon than they are in life. I am having too much fun with crayons. Warning of what’s to come. Haha.
One week in and the artwork in the group is AMAZING! I had fun with these florals, but I am itching to move on to something else. Don’t ask me what. LOL.
Fun side note. I was featured in Janine Vangool’s weekend newsletter, All About You. Janine is the publisher / editor / designer of UPPERCASE, the quarterly magazine for the creative and curious.
Painting is a source of endless pleasure,
but also of great anguish.
Painting is concerned with all the 10 attributes of sight;
which are: Darkness, Light, Solidity and Colour,
Form and Position, Distance and Propinquity,
Motion and Rest.

My July watercolor diary. I placed my favorites in the middle. I am honestly pleased with just about every piece. There are two I’d call do overs. The florals at the bottom. I was trying to paint like someone else. A new method. Lesson learned. Haha.
I painted 8 others. Two of which are complete duds. I thought they could be fixed. But no, they fought me to the end. The rest are abstract landscapes and they might make an appearance in the future. I attempted another coneflower for a grand finale. Haha. Instead, some quiet, spindly little wildflowers. But I am exceedingly happy with the vase. Haha. Silver lining.
Thanks everyone, for following along. It is always a JOY to hear from you. Thank you!
