Roses Watercolor Painting, Sketches

Roses watercolor painting, a deceivingly difficult subject and I'm not 100% sure that I'm happy with this, it measures 12 x 16 inches on Arches 140 pound paper. This is from a Wet Canvas weekend drawing event from Robert in France. Some sketches, below, also - kind of felt like a bit of plein air painting....

The house is where Vincent Van Gogh lived in Auvers sur Oise. The sketches were done with new Caran d'Ache watercolor crayons and ink.

There are only two ways to live your life.
One is as though nothing is a miracle.

Fruit and Jug Still Life Watercolor Painting

Fruit and Jug Still Life Watercolor Painting is 7 x 10 inches on 170 pound Pastelmat paper. I love the richness of the color using this paper, but the control is less for the medium, since it spreads beyond where your brush is unless you have a very dry brush. I also use water color pencils to get a sharper line also. Ink works well also.

And June may be had by the poorest comer.
And what is so rare as a day in June?

The cure for anything is salt water - sweat, tears, or the sea.
~Isak Dinesen

The Challenged Sea Turtle of Mystic Aquarium, Kiki Latimer, and myself, illustrator of the book, will be signing copies from 11 a.m until 3 p.m. This is a wonderful story of Charlotte, a real turtle at Mystic, who was rescued by the Georgia Sea Turtle Rescue after a boating accident. Because of her injuries, she may never be able to survive in the ocean again, but meanwhile, she resides at Mystic with the stingrays. It's a story of overcoming the obstacles that come our way in life, and self-acceptance. I would love to meet you!

Pink Rose 2 Watercolor Painting

Pink Rose 2 watercolor painting is 5 x 7 inches. I got about half way through this painting when I realized I had done this before - on Pastelmat paper so it looks different. If you're curious to compare you can find it in the search box 'Pink Rose'.

A rose is the visible result of an infinitude of complicated goings
on in the bosom of the earth and in the air above, and similarly
a work of art is the product of strange activities in the human mind.

Clive Bell
