Happy Valentine's Day!
Watercolor, 8" x 10"
What better to paint during an east coast artic tundra thunder snow storm than flowers!
I don't usually work on a black background but boy does it make whatever you are painting magical.
I didn't use frisket here instead painted in the background freely after the flower was finished.
That gives some variation to the darkness which I like.
Watercolor, 11" x 14"
It has been a week of flowers and prepping for my next larger piece (more on that to come).
Here is an addition to my Pen & Ink Watercolors. I like doing these in between my more realistic paintings as a break. I find the ink drawings especially relaxing.
And although they are fun I really find more satisfaction in realism.
But I will keep both approaches going and might find a way to combine them at some point.
I wonder, which do you like better?
Have a good weekend!
