Waterfall #2 Original Watercolor Painting


Waterfall #2 original watercolor painting is 9 x 12 on Arches 140 lb paper.   This is actually my third painting of this scene.  Hopefully three times "is the charm" as the saying goes.   :-)    Sometimes people will ask me how long it takes to do a painting, and this is the kind of thing that's difficult to explain --- all the times you don't achieve what you wanted to with a painting.    After seeing the final webinar and hearing all those 13 commandments of a good painting after looking at this I had to change it.  Unfortunately, I forgot in all my optimism that I had already listed this on Ebay.    The auction ends today, and I did post a revised picture, but unfortunately Ebay doesn't allow you to alter your description or delete the original photo.  The same thing is true of the Waterfall posted below, also revised since posting.    And of course, I couldn't resist some trivia on that saying (of which there is more on Phrase Finder) :

‘The luck of the third adventure’ is proverbial."
Elizabeth Barret Browning

3 Roses Original Watercolor Painting

3 Roses watercolor painting is 8 x 12 inches on Arches 140 lb paper. I know I said to post another waterfall, but I am thinking of doing it over (again) because I see a lot of things I don't like--mainly that it is overworked.   Knowing when to stop in a painting is important so that doesn't happen.   Painting is a continual learning process.....

For the things we have to learn before we can do them, 
we learn by doing them.    Aristotle

Waterfall Watercolor Painting


Waterfall watercolor painting is 8 x 12 inches on Arches paper.   I watched a live webinar with Johannes Vloothuis on Saturday (the second of 3) sponsored by The Artist's Magazine and this reference was part of this week's homework assignment.    I kept hearing his voice in my head as I painted....."thou shalt have abstract shapes....thou shalt vary colors within that abstract....'no fly' zones....     :-)  Tomorrow I will post another waterfall, which I redid after the webinar.

And here is the final painting, which I revised yestserday:

 I think this has more color harmony than the original above.....

When I treat myself with love and approval,
I know that I am recovering."

Olivia Roses Original Watercolor Painting

Olivia Roses watercolor painting is 9 x 12 inches on Arches 140 pound paper.   You may be asking, what are Olivia Roses?----I started running out of names for my roses so it's a made up name. 

Days of wine and roses laugh and run away, like a child at play.

Thailand Sunset Watercolor Painting

 Thailand Sunset watercolor painting is from a Wet Canvas weekend drawing event.  This reference was one I wanted to do since I've been focusing on skies. The challenge for this was to do a self portrait, which I did also.  I'm not happy with it so I may not post it......    :-)

Summer Afternoon Watercolor Painting

Summer Afternoon watercolor painting is 11 x 15 inches on Arches 140 pound paper.   A beautiful summer afternoon with the last wild roses of the summer, and  is  on Block Island, looking toward Corn Neck Road and beyond that, the dunes and the ocean (Crescent Beach).  Block Island has lots of ponds  and lakes, and I'm not sure what the name of this one is.   

I question not if thrushes sing,
If roses load the air;
Beyond my heart I need not reach
When all is summer there.
~John Vance Cheney
