The Bouquet


   Tuesday hubby and son were off playing golf and GD Kelcey was on facebook, so I had some free time.   For the inspiration I used a photo from WC.  I decided on no drawing for this painting.  I started the painting at the top, using water to paint with then dropping in the color. Letting them run and bleed together.  I enjoyed trying this looser style for a change.  Please enjoy this summer bouquet.

Happy 'Rooms to Paint

Good Morning to Everone

   At this time of year in my area it seems mushrooms jump up all over.  Everywhere you look you can see these little fellows basking in the sun.    They are mostly a lovely white color but I decided this time to do them in rich colors.   So here they are facing the sun saying what a great day this is.
   I am having a wonderful week as my son Eamonn and my oldest granddaughter Kelcey are here.  Not a lot of art being done but a lot a beach going with our with high temps.
   This is watercolor on Arches 140cp block.

 Thanks everyone for looking and commenting.

  Happy Friday to everyone.  I thought I would share my latest watercolor painting with all of you.  Besides really liking pansies, roses and daisies I also like to paint irises. For my inspiration I used this  beautiful photo provided in Wet Canvas by Janezel, thankyou.  We are having a beautiful blue sky day and I feel this painting matches this type of day to a tee. Thanks everyone for looking and please leave comments..Cause I love to read them.

       Sadly all my company has left and the  house is very quiet.  This painting I started last week after I watched a video on Youtube done by my Painting Friend Ann. I became so inspired to paint and the granddaughters were watching tv, so I sat down and started this.  I finished it yesterday after everyone left. It is from a photo provided by another Painting Friend Ruth for our Monthly Mindbender.  
   This is watercolor done on Arches 140 cp block 8"by 10"  
   I think it speaks of summer and happiness.  I want to thank everyone for looking and please add  a comment as I love reading them.
