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.

Draw me into your colors of bright orange and yellow. Wash away my pain and stressful life.  Soak my negative thoughts away and leave me with positive ones.  Let the music of the ocean waves lull me into peace and drown out my racing heart.

Motivational Monday ~

It’s not easy to get motivated during a time like this. People get motivated to go to the gym every morning, do the very best job at work, Play their best game on their school sport, the list goes on.

Our new motivation has changed in the past few days. Now the motivation is how can we be socially distant and keep everyone in the family health. It’s not an easy task but it is one that I’m sure we all can successfully do.

Let’s explore the world of iphone photography!

iphone photography  has totally changed everyone’s ability to take photos. It has given all of us a change to be that artistic genius whom we all know is inside of us! As a photographer, when I am looking upon a scene in my view finder, my mind is racing with all the possibility that when I take that shot, it will evoke all the drama, passion, artistic dreams that I had for that photo. Uncertainty hours later, when I am sitting in front of the computer, down loading my photos, I think, ” Wow, now that picture is just not as powerful or creative as I had hoped . ” Well, thank god for Photoshop to help create that artist photo that I wanted. Nevertheless, when I am in a rush or my back bothers me, and I don’t want to lug around my camera equipment; the iphone comes in handle, and it gives me wonderful results. I use much different photography apps to create the perfect vision that I was daydreaming about when taking the photo. My mom always taught me to share so I am sharing what I use, and I hope that you will share with me and the rest of us that use iPhone photography!
