Underwater Watercolor Painting

Robbie Watercolor Painting

Robbie watercolor painting from a black and white photo of my father, is 8 x 10 inches and is done on YES canvas. This is my first time using a canvas for watercolors, so it took me a while playing with this and I'm still not happy with it. You can wash off 95% of the paint, which I did twice. The paint lifts really easily when you're adding a wash, or blending colors, so you need a very soft brush and just the right amount of water.....so a learning curve, for sure. The advantage is it can be sprayed with a fixative and then varnished, and this particular canvas is a 3/4" wrapped canvas, so it could be hung without a frame at all, once the sides are painted. So, that's the reason for no posts for a few days here ....I've been doing the same painting over and over!

In these hard economic times, a thought on hope, on looking to the future, from Alexander Graham Bell.....

"When one door closes
another door opens;
but we so often look so long and so
regretfully upon the closed door, that we
do no see the ones which are open."

Ducks--Not In a Row Watercolor Painting

Ducks-Not In A Row watercolor painting measures 12 x 16 inches on Arches 140 pound paper.

Whether the expression has it's origins in the V formation they form in flight, or duckpin bowling pins, or the line of babies that follow Mama duck....it speaks of being prepared.

Why not seize the pleasure at once?
- How often is happiness destroyed by preparation,
foolish preparation.

Puppy in the Garden Watercolor

Puppy in the Garden watercolor, 7 x 9 inches. I deliberately left the background with a partially done look finish. I may go back and work on it some more, or not. Knowing when to stop working - someone has said it's usually ten minutes before we do. Many paintings are ruined by fussing with them. This is from WDE at WetCanvas.com

LITTLE THINGS

by Julia Fletcher


Little drops of water,
Little grains of sand,
Make the mighty ocean
And the pleasant land.

Thus the little minutes,
Humble though they be,
Make the mighty ages
Of eternity.
