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.

Show And Tell Watercolor

Shortbread Cookie with Hershey Kiss

Here are some of my watercolor from this week! Desserts and drinks themed!

Margarita
Fruit Cocktail
Mojito
Ice Coffee in mason jar
Cream Puff
Ice Latte

All of my watercolor’s were done with three brands of watercolor.

1. Windsor and Newton

2. Reeves

3. Holbein

I only used two watercolor brushes, Silver Brush Black Velvet sizes 6 and 4.

The paper that I only use is Arches cold pressed rough.

I love taking pictures of flowers that has been always as a photographer my favorite thing to do. But with watercolor, I find that the food illustration seems to fascinate me!

Copying The Masters~ Matisse And His Wife At Collioure

Here is the original which was done by Andre Derain, summer 1905. The picture is of Mattisse and his wife.  It was done on ink on paper.

When I was in art school learning about ink drawing, I chose this picture to work on learning about how the strokes where made. Below is my attempt to copying this picture. I saw that proportion is an area that needs work.

This was a great exercise of learning how to draw with ink and drawing. It was not that easy but I am willing to try this again with other master artists.

 

FOWC~ A Nice Steak ~ Dinner

For today’s word on FOWC with Fandango it is dinner!

So I decided to use my watercolor and pen drawings to give you a lovely dinner!

 

Deviled eggs

First, let’s start with some appetizers.  Here are some Deviled Eggs with cucumbers and smoked salmon bites.

steak with potatoes

For the main course, some steak with thyme, roasted potatoes, and broccoli.

choose of desserts

You get a choice of two desserts. The first is a delicious chocolate cupcake and then next is homemade Apple pie!

Enjoy my interpretation of the word dinner. FOWC- Dinner

 

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.

 

 

Watercolor Appreciation For Nurses

img_3762

Nurses don’t wait until October to celebrate “Make a Difference Day”. They make a difference everyday!” – Author unknown

Nurses are out there in the front lines of this Coronavirus. They are risking their health to take care of all who are sick.  I know there have been many nurses that I have had in my life that have made the difference. Their dedication, hard work, and loving care is so greatly appreciated.  I wanted to make a watercolor with the word HERO on their uniform because that is what they are to all of us.  They are Heros!

I will work on watercoloring a Doctor soon as they are Heros to during this health crisis.
