All of these watercolors were painted on Arches Cold Press Paper, 100% cotton, 140LB. I find that the Arches is the best, high quality paper that is great for layering colors, water control and keeps the colors looking fresh and bright.

I use a scanner to transfer the watercolor into the computer and with Photoshop, I clean up the watercolor, brighten the colors.

Some of the watercolor brands that I use are Winsor and Newton Professional watercolor, Holbein Artists Watercolor and Sennelier. My favorite are the Winsor and Newton as their colors are more thicker and I have better water control with them. the Sennelier are more transparent and need I have a harder time building the colors up.

Reflections Of The Day

This was taken the night of the tragedy of Newton Shooting in Newton, CT. I will never forget standing in my driveway and marveling at the beautiful sky. Wondering how can a day finish with so much beauty, but have had a horrible tragedy unfold that day. When I went to editing the photo, my feelings where to add a reflection of the trees and the sky. We have to reflect and think about how lines have blurred in our world. The stark reality of our world is with lightness, there is darkness around. With beauty there is a darker side to our world.

Photography Friday

So here is the deal. I would like to make a commitment to myself and post some of my photography every day. Knowing that I am a stay-at-home -mom with a brand new puppy, I am forget at times. I would like to give it a try. A saying that has been heard around my house recently is ” You won’t know unless you try” . Here is me trying. This Friday is all about flowers.

Please click on each photo, I have a  neat description about where I took the picture.

I am always working on branching out into the blending modes and layers of photoshop CS 6. I just purchased the book “The Hidden Power Of Blend Modes In Adobe Photoshop” by Scott Valentine. I just learned about taking a photo and creating a graphic illustration. I hope you all like it! I am selling this photo on an iphone 5 g case and stickers from Zazzle.
