Spirit of Lark Rise Watercolor

This painting captures the spirit of a made up place in the poverty-stricken people and sense of community in Lark Rise. Their physical world is much different but this painting reflects the noble character of its’ residents.

Trees and Sky Watercolor

I can’t decide if I like this one or not. I think the different styles are throwing me off. I have soft trees, then stark Brusho trees – maybe that’s it. I think I can do better but since I think all paintings should see the spotlight – even the bad ones – I’m going to put it up. 🙂

As always, comments/critiques are welcome. 🙂

 

 

Winter Chills – Watercolor

Burrr! It’s cold out here! This is the other painting I did during the hurricane in the dark. I just love blues and grays! As always, comments/critiques are welcome. (even if I forget to write it) 🙂

Bamboo Forest Watercolor

I just finished this one and I love how it turned out! It’s amazing what highlighting and shading can do. Without them, the bamboo would look like stripes. 🙂 Got another one I want to do and it involves experimenting with gouche. As always, feedback is welcome. 🙂

Seascape Experiment – Critiques Welcome

seascapeexperiment

I can’t decide if I like this one or not. The composition is awful I know. But I kinda like the colors and strokes. For the sea, I did a clear water wash over it to sort of blend the colors into the white areas giving it a softer look. I could make the sky look more like a sky but then that would be a different technique than the rest of the painting and that would look strange. I tried to be consistent.

Any thoughts? Critiques?
