Watercolor Workshop Adventure

I had a great time at Oil & Cotton yesterday where I took a Watercolor Portrait Workshop with Jay Bailey. I learned so much in 3 hours and enjoyed every minute of it!

Using my new Drawing Set Today

Having fun using my new drawing set. I have always loved the painting “The Threatened Swan” by Jan Asselijn in 1650. This is drawn from that painting. Drawing brings me back to the beginning of my love for art. I have heard so many times that it is always a good thing to sketch or work in a sketch book every day. Maybe I can make that happen this year.

Playing with watercolor is a wonderful exercise in painting in a loose and free style. These small pieces were great “homework” for me.

Garden Series V

The beauty of a flower garden is a favorite subject for me. I love the colors of greenery in the sunlight. Soft blue greens and golden yellow light were a joy to mix in creating this painting from my “imaginary garden”.

Playing with I Phone Apps & My Original Watercolor

On a whim I decided to take a photo of my watercolor and run it through some IPhone Apps for fun. As an old school artist I am not a fan of computer art. Playing with my original art in applications that offer color and pattern was great fun!
