I’ve been very lucky so far in 2017 to have the time to take two professional watercolor classes with decidedly different approaches. I find both intriguing and am delighted in the results from both instructors. Above are my latest paintings completed in a 3 hr workshop in North Jersey.
Using watercolor pens without an underlying sketch proved interesting. The loose, playful way in which I painted the geranium flowers in the first painting proved that I could “loosen up” as it has an oriental feel which I really like. The second painting was revamped at home darkening the dogwood to reflect more of a shaded environment. In class, we were attempting backgrounds that produced sediment upon mixing two colors together. Here, I used ultramarine lite and burnt umber. The pink cast is opera.
Both paintings will be matted and available at this weekend’s fair…..Niska Day May 20. Come out and visit!Please Share With Your Friends
