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 Bryant Please see the paintings purchasing information for some general information about pricing, or email me at bunnygriffeth@gmail.com and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Pears Watercolor Painting

Pears watercolor paintin g 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'.

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.
