Blue Heron Watercolor Painting

Blue Heron watercolor painting is 9 X 12.  I used the same technique but I used a one of my photos for a reference.   I have another photo that I think would be fun to try. 

You must plan to be spontaneous.

ROOSTER SPLASH WATERCOLOR PAINTING

Rooster splash watercolor painting, done after viewing Liam Quan Zhen's video on splashing and blowing techniques....I will be doing a few others also.  This was a lot of fun to do, although I had to use a straw for the blowing as without it the paint wouldn't move. 

It's easy to paint a thousand points of light with a thousand brushstrokes. It's much more difficult - and infinitely more eloquent - to paint a thousand points of light with only one hundred strokes.

Watercolor is a swim in the metaphysics of life...

Let it be unpredictable and colorful.

WATERFALL WATERCOLOR PAINTING

WATERFALL watercolor painting is 11 X 15 inches on Arches 140 pound paper.   This was done with an online demo from Liam Quan Zhen who will be visiting the Watercolor Society in July and doing a three day workshop. 

I ordered a couple of his DVD's as I love this technique and have tried on my own to do a painting in this manner but haven't been very successful.   I'm pretty happy with the results from this as a first attempt, but I have a photo of some koi fish that I want to do and see if I can get the effect I want.  It's an experiment with color and pouring and spraying....

Color is like cooking. The cook puts in more or less salt, that's the difference!

RIVER OTTER ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR PAINTING

RIVER OTTER original watercolor painting is 12  x  12 inches on Arches 140 pound paper.  

Fear keeps us focused on the past or worried about the future. 
If we can acknowledge our fear, we can realize 
that right now we are okay. 
 Right now, today, we are still alive, and our bodies 
are working marvelously. 
Our eyes can still see the beautiful sky. 
Our ears can still hear the voices of our loved ones. 
Thich Nhat Hanh
