Blooming White Rose

"Blooming White Rose" 8 by 10, Original Watercolor Painting
 
My latest watercolor painting is this beautiful white rose. I was drawn to the photo because of the contrast of the white flower and dark background, and shadows. I just loved everything about it, and I'm very happy with the way it turned out.
 
 It's available for purchase in my Etsy shop if anyone is interested.
 
Have a great weekend!

Purple Whimsy

"Purple Whimsy" 5 by 7, Original Watercolor Painting
 
"Purple Whimsy" is my latest painting. I originally thought the flower was a Cosmo, but now I'm not sure. In any case I was drawn to the photograph I used as a reference because of the soft purple petals. It was just so beautiful.
 
This painting is available for purchase in my Etsy shop if anyone is interested.
 
Have a great week!

May Lily

I finally got a good scan of this painting. I used my new light tent and I think I like it. I did a comparison between the light tent and the scanner. For making reproduction prints, the light tent is definitely the best.
 
This painting is available for purchase in my Etsy shop if anyone is interested.
 
Next, I think I'm going to work on some larger paintings. Maybe 16 by 20? Should be fun! :)

New Painting

I recently moved my "studio" up to my sewing room and have been painting a bit.
 
 My new set up. It's not my favorite place to work because of the lack of natural light, but it will work.
 
This is the watercolor painting I've been working on the past couple days. I overworked it a bit but it still came out quite nice. I will take a proper photo soon. I ordered a light tent for photographing art so I'm anxious to receive it and give it a try. :)
