WIP – Begonias on Parade?

3 Mar

This is a new way to torment myself.  Little flowers ans icky picky detail.  What in the work am I thinking – I can guarantee my next two paintings will be poured paintings! I will need to get the cobwebs out after this one!

Thinking Begonias on Parade but open to other titles.  This is a  22 x 30″ watercolor on Ampersand Aquabord.

A Few Old Fashioned Ladies….

14 Aug

Ah yes, another watercolor on Aquabord.  Finally think I am getting the hang of the surface! It is almost impossible to do multiple washes or layring on it – the under colour “lifts” or worse yet – mixes with the top wash.  And yet the finished painting is absolutely vibrant.

These pansies remind me of the old fashioned ones in every country garden I saw as a child, or the old china teacup with the delightful pansies on them – hence the paintings title.

So I link it, and once I figure out a framing solution – I will let you know if I intend to purchase more.  I still will admit, for any intricate and serious work, I will always use Arched 300lb cold pressed paper. 

Oh, by the way – I think they are “bluish” not so purple?
