Fawn Watercolor Painting

Fawn watercolor painting is 5 x 5 inches on Ampersand Watercolor board.   This is my first attempt at this surface to paint on, and I do love it.   I believe that it can be coated so no mat or glass is necessary, or it could be matted and framed in the usual way.   This is another from the weekend drawing event at Wet Canvas.

Pink Roses Number 2 Watercolor Painting

Zebra Butterfly Watercolor Painting

Zebra Butterfly watercolor painting is 7 x 10 inches on Arches 140 pound paper. The hardest part was getting the reflection on the wings - I used some Aztec Gold iridescent (Daniel Smith)  paint to finally achieve what I wanted.

Blue Heron Watercolor Painting

Blue Heron Watercolor Painting is 7.75 x 7.75 inches on Sennelier watercolor paper.   This was part of a Wet Canvas weekend drawing event and the challenge, below, was to do an ink and watercolor wash painting.   I do like the effect of the ink and wash.  There was another challenge to do a 'painting' from cut up pieces of paper.   We have done this in my watercolor class at one time but used old paintings that for one reason or another don't work, but I need to get some glue.  It's nice to challenge yourself with different things.

 
This is  8  x 10 in my sketchpad.

"Creativity is the Blue Heron within us waiting to fly;
through her imagination, all things become possible.
Nadia Janice Brown

They lie closed over in the wind and cling
Where wheels have freshly sliced the April mire.
