Watercolor Show And Tell

Here are my latest watercolor and illustrations!

For a Beach challenge I had to watercolor a pool float! So I wanted to create some thing that was a little bit more exciting than just a pool floats without a background. So I did this fun water pattern with my float.
This is for a flower watercolor challenge, dahlias. I decide to do painterly Dahlias.
For another flower art challenge, this is a realistic Peony to the best of my ability!
For the beach challenge, I had to watercolor a sun hat. So this gave me a great opportunity to practice my female profile illustrations.
Again for the beach challenge, I had to watercolor a fish. So I decided to work on my watercolor background and draw my beta fish in ink.
This was for a doodle wash challenge, I had to create a raspberry tart. This was a lot of fun to work on as I love to illustrate food.

Watercolor Easter Bunny During Coronavirus

The new reality for at least right now. The importance of wearing a facemask so the Coronavirus doesn’t spread. Years from now, when I look back at my art work, I really hope that this was just a once in a lifetime event. I guess we will see how this plays out. Will I be painting a Santa with a face-mask too? Time will tell.

Happy Easter!

TikTok Art~ The Latest Rage

So my older kids are always trying to help me with ideas on promoting my art and shops! They told me to take my art to TikTok and create something fast and fun. Well, that is so not easy! It takes me days to create an image with hours of working out the colors, shadowing, highlights etc.  I had to give it a try and see if I could paint on demand.

I thought that doing a loose floral watercolor would be easy. Painting fast, here is my Hyacinths Easter Basket.

 

Getting into it, I decided to do a dog drawing with a coffee cup!

 

After spending a few hours creating some TikToks, it was fun! It made my kids happy since they want to show off my art to their friends.
