Wisteria Watercolor

After buying a watercolor book (see previous post), I decided to try to paint a wisteria flower. After many attempts, this one was the best. As you can see, I lifted some paint out for light, did some negative painting, and painted the branch with a flat brush instead of the usual round. I’m almost getting there. haha 🙂

Yesteryear Roses Watercolor

Another rose attempt with a spiffy, colorful background in neutrals. To me, this has kind of an ‘old’ feel hence the name. No real plan here – just paint. There are so many talented artists among my WordPress friends – I hope I can be as good as you guys some day.

Feel free to leave comments/critiques and suggestions. 🙂

Hot Mess Edition – Wet on Wet Gone Awry – Do Not Try This at Home!

hotmessflowerskindaIf you rub your eyes vigorously and squint while tilting your head, you might be able to make out that these are supposed to be negative flowers. I don’t think wet on wet is the right technique for doing this. Gonna try dry on wet and bleed out the outer edges.

Happy painting!  — Carol
