Happy Saturday

 I haven't been doing many watercolors lately have been concentrating on oils for the last couple of weeks.  So on Thursday I sat my self down and decided to do this watercolor.   I really enjoyed getting my brushes wet again and painting something that always makes me happy.  I used Daniel Smith Quin. Coral for the rose and I like the pink it gave me.  I'm also happy with the green I got using Cer. Blue and Winsor Green (Blue Shade). 
  Hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day Holiday.  Thanks for looking and I love to read your comments.

Yellow Sails
This is the last painting I did in my oil class taught by a very wonderful artist Jane Woodward. It is on Gallery Wrapped Canvas size 12" by 16".  This was done once again only using a palette knife.  I believe this would be one beautiful beach to visit, even if made up.  So please enjoy your time here and leave a comment if you wish. Thank you all for viewing.

A Study of Mollie's Strawberries

In our forum one of our Painting Friends Mollie gave us a wonderful demo on how to do Strawberries in Watercolor.  This is my study from following her demo.   I am so grateful to her because it got me back into watercolors and actually enjoy doing them again.  I think I was a little heavy handed with the reds but otherwise I am happy with how it turned out.   I drew my berries smaller than the original photo so I had to add something in the lower right hand corner. It was a napkin but I didn't like how it showed so I changed it into a cloth with blue and red stripes.   I hope everyone is having a nice beginning to May.  Please stop by and view and if you'd like please comment.  Thank all of you for looking at this.
