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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Watercolor Flowers Book

watercolorbookI may have bitten off more than I can chew. Look at this cover. Tell me this isn’t for an expert watercolorist! ๐Ÿ™‚ But I’m ambitious and I’m into crashing and burning. haha.

I plan on doing an iris and wisteria – although not exactly like the photos – just the main elements of it – I’m not crazy – I know my limits! haha ๐Ÿ™‚ Wish me luck! ๐Ÿ™‚ Continue reading

Enchanted Forest Watercolor

I’ve painted this scene, or variations of it, a hundred times and they all look different. I kinda like this one so I’m putting it up. Don’t ask what the dots are – it’s just something I like to add in some of my pieces just because. ๐Ÿ™‚ I enhanced the color digitally – the colors aren’t quite as saturated IRL. Hope you likey ๐Ÿ™‚ As always comments/critiques are welcome. ๐Ÿ™‚

English Door – Just Playing Around

This is one of the very first watercolor paintings I did when I started painting last year. I was treating it like oil – you can’t even tell it’s watercolor. I’m putting it up here because it will never see the light of day anywhere else. Not quite a “hot mess” but it is inย a drawer and in the “In the Closet” category. Got lots of those. ๐Ÿ™‚ This is loosely based off of a counted cross stitch pattern that I have.
