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.
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?

Here’s a watercolor I did with no real plan. I knew I wanted something pink and just started painting. I painted this vertically but when I was done, I thought it looked better horizontally. This took me HOURS to do – so many layers. Hope you like it. 🙂
As always, critiques and comments welcome. 🙂

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) 🙂
