Cherry Blossoms Watercolor

Here’s my rendition of a cherry blossom. I’d like to paint them with more detail in the future. I was going for cheerful and sunny. To see my other stuff, go here.

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 🙂

In The Treetops Watercolor

inthetreetopsscaledThis painting is loosely based off of a counted cross stitch pattern that we have. Although this doesn’t do the original stitching justice, I kind of like it. I started off using a black and blue background and painting everything with gouache but it just didn’t look right so I redid it using transparent watercolors. Hope you likey 🙂

Here’s my attempt at roses again. I got to use some of my new brushes and pens in this one. I’m loving my new fat juicy quill! I’m also sportin’ my new Indigo and Prussian Blue paints. Hope you likey. 🙂

As always, comments/critiques are welcome. 🙂 (Go easy – remember I’m new) 🙂

Secret Streamlet Watercolor

I’m very pleased with this one. I could probably give the mountain and stream a little more shape but other than that, I actually like it. I worked very hard at not being concerned about where objects started and stopped. I kept telling myself that it’s ok for a shoreline NOT to be defined but instead, let it bleed into the stream. I had to convince myself that a mountain or cliff does NOT have to always be brown even though it goes against every fibre of my being. Even painting a tree that’s leaning is extremely vexing for me because I have to have everything even and straight and the correct color. I have to actually work at being free and loose. Must be my personality type or something.

What say ye?
