|Summer Flowers, 11x9, Watercolor $200|
We went to the farmers market this morning and came home with a bunch of pretty summer flowers. Since they were sitting on the dining room table I decided to use them and some peppers for my inspiration.
|rather than waiting for the perfect situation I decided to simply paint what I saw!|
|the watercolor alone seemed a little wimpy so I decided to get out the watercolor crayons...|
As you can see the line work really made this image POP! I am inspired by artists whose art is whimsical. As part of the 30 in 30 challenge I resolve to allow some whimsy into my work!
Flowers are so darn complex that I tend to get lost in them. Adding bold lines allows me to simply focus on the fun of the arrangement.
I want to infuse my larger works with the looseness of my travel sketches. We shall see how it unfolds...
I am grateful for the many blessings of my life as it is today.
