It's been awhile... some new work!

Well, it's been about a month since I was messing around in here.

Since then I've been working on other things, like designing a logo for a local
restaurant, menu design for same, and they also have 4 of my paintings hanging there now.

The last watercolor that I did is there, here's what it looks like framed.

Another Version of the Previous Hollyhocks Painting

This looks different. This painting is a repeat version of the previous scene, but this time I just did what I call direct painting. I didn't use any fancy techniques. Just painted it. I could not believe how much difference it made when I looked at the old one beside the new one.

Also, my eyes ain't what they used to be. I saw lots more in the ref photo this time because I used a magnifying glass and saw things entirely differently.

Hope you like it!

Latest Watercolor Painting

This is a picture of the last thing I did. Just stopped on it last night. It's a rendition of a photo I took of my hollyhocks, backlit.

Lots going on, and nothing going on.

I must make myself get some painting done!

Next in the Series - SG Hollyhocks!

Here's the next one!

And this may be my favorite so far! I've discovered a secret weapon in my arsenal of lifting color tools.

And so I said "Let there bnt Light!" And there was.


What I'm going to do today... I hope

Going to start on a new watercolor today. This one will be Stained Glass Hollyhocks.
Everybody loves my iris one on the group I'm in. I bought some framed prints and
trying to get into those things is a major project, but I have at least got two framed.
I broke the glass on one of them though, so have to get new glass.

This time when I do the hollyhocks, before I begin to paint, I'm going to think carefully
about the entire design. I have just been going with it, not planning that much the end
result. I'm going to do it differently this time.

If I have some time, will work on the oil painting too.

Stained Glass Iris Revisited

Well, I've been playing around with this all morning.
I learned some valuable lessons. I'm still not totally happy
with it, but a lot happier. One of the things I learned was
not to leave out the RED. It makes it work.

What do you think of this? I think to leave a comment, go
to the very bottom of the page, and click on the comment

This picture is a little dark for the real thing.

Today I'm worried about this one.....

I have worked on this one for awhile. Several days, anyway. I'm not at all happy with it yet.
If anybody has any thoughts or ideas, please comment on this and I will take your ideas into consideration.

Here's the picture.

My first posting!

I just found out about this and saw it as an opportunity for personal and artistic growth.

Lately I've been doing some watercolors, trying to get back into watercolor after
a long time, that are florals that look like stained glass. The first two turned out reasonably well. The first one is the lily, and the pansies are the second one I have done.

Today I'm about to try to correct a watercolor that I messed up last night.

This is so cool!
