Roses Watercolor Painting (#3)

 Roses watercolor painting is 8 x 10 inches on Arches 300 lb paper.     I did this using my version of a 'pour technique' - pouring the painting on.  Instead, I wet the paper and then dropped paint unto the surface and then allowed it to dry, doing the actual painting after.

 The rose that lives its little hour
Is prized beyond the sculptured flower

"....tilting through the water,
    unruffled, sure,
      by the laws
of their faith not logic,
  they opened their wings
    softly and stepped
      over every dark thing."

Pears Watercolor Painting



Pears watercolor painting is 9 x 12 inches on Arches 140 pound paper.   Calling this my 'resurrected pears'....     The problem with this for me was the background, which didn't come out the way I envisioned it, and then I completely ruined it....it was headed for the trash, but I thought I would see what would happen if I washed it out (put it in a tub of water and scrubbed as much of the paint off as I could).  I let it dry and thought I would give it another try.   Not my usual style, I think, but definitely a 'save'.

Blue Heron and Yellow Flowers Watercolor Painting

Blue Heron and Yellow Flowers watercolor painting is 9 x 12 inches on Arches 140 pound paper.   On our walk around the lake nearby we spotted one.    I used some different colors to get the subtle color differences between background water and the heron and I was lucky...  as my dear mother used to say, "Better to be lucky than smart."

Titania in the Pinks Watercolor Painting


Titania in the Pinks Watercolor Painting
9 x 12 inches on Arches 140 pound paper
Of course, Titania is the queen of the fairies (Midsummer's Night Dream, by William Shakespeare).
This was from a photo reference from Wet Canvas.   The host of the weekly drawing event for this weekend was "Scattykat" from France.  I am getting ready for Festival Fete this Saturday, June 11th from 10 - 5 pm if you are in the area, so lots of busy work.   I would rather be painting!!

The fairy poet takes a sheet
Of moonbeam, silver white;
His ink is dew from daisies sweet,
His pen a point of light.
~Joyce Kilmer

Daisies Watercolor Painting

Daisies Watercolor Painting
8 x 10 inches on Arches 140 pound paper
The original background I had was green and very boring so I hated it.  This was washed out - that is, given a bath under the faucet, and with just a faint outline of what I had originally done, did it over again using a different background.   I think the vibrant background holds the three daisies together and adds a warm contrast as well. 

A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.
