Springtime on the Forum


The flowers are blooming on my For the Love of Watercolor Forum.
Thought I would share our Challenge #3 and the wonderful work of the artists on my forum with everyone.  The Black-Eyed Susan.
Wonderful work, with concentration on smooth backgrounds and cast shadows.

Three Tulips and St. Patricks Day

This is my latest watercolor painting and the latest instructional watercolor video on my "For the Love of Watercolor" forum.   Something to help everyone think Spring!



Also, let me introduce you to my watercolor painting "Still Life with Belleek".  The story behind this still life is that my brother lived in Ireland for several years, and brought back with him a wealth of special Irish gifts for me to paint.  The table was handmade in Ireland.  The book, "Legends of Killarney" he purchased in Shannon, Ireland.  A hand carved marble cross.  And, of course, the Irish linen and Belleek.  It made a gorgeous watercolor.  So gorgeous that I decided to make prints of it.  The prints have all sold out, but I do have several Artist Proofs that are available.  I will have these available through St. Patricks Day for those interested.
Here is a link to purchase:

Limited Edition Lithograph ~ Artist's Proof

For those of you asking, What is an Artist's Proof ?, here is your answer:
*The first prints off the printing press and are considered to be of the highest quality and are designated “artist’s proofs”.  The artist’s proofs are considered to be the best prints within the edition and often kept by the artist.  Because the art world loves rarity and since there are fewer artist’s proofs than regular prints, they are preferred by many collectors.

Something that looks spring-like as we are here in the midst of a very cold cold couple of weeks.  (That's not "Florida" cold, thats Indiana cold, highs in the single digits.)  Tomorrow will be 28 degrees, which, incredibly, will seem warm.  It's all about what you're accustomed to I guess...

I also have only 6 of the Welcome Packages left for those signing up for my forum for a year, here is the link for that:  For the Love of Watercolor.

Christmas on the Forum

 
Another "perk" of subscribing to my forum is a monthly drawing for one of the watercolors that was filmed for the forum.  This month it's the Poinsettia above.  All the names will be put into a basket for everyone signed up for my membership-based forum by the 23rd of the month, either monthly or yearly.  Then on the 24th I will draw a name and send that person the original watercolor.  It will be matted and shrinkwrapped for a lovely presentation.  If you win once, then you won't be eligible to win again for a year...but, if you didn't win this month, your name will remain in the basket for the next months drawing.  Every new member that signs up will be added to the basket.  I will post the name of the winner on the forum on the 24th under the watercolor they've won.  Good luck to everyone!

Christmas Poinsettia Video

www.jacquelinegnott.ning.com


My Christmas Poinsettia Video is up on my

This video is an excellent tutorial for how to glaze into dark, rich watercolors.  Working with deep reds can be difficult, but I'll show you how to do it very simply.  We will also work with a value scale to make working with all of the different values of a single color flower, such as a Poinsettia, easily transform into a great painting.  The value scale also aids in creating 3-Dimentionality in your flowers.

Christmas Dahlia


"Christmas Dahlia"
Watercolor on Paper
8" x 10"

  SOLD
I thought this Dahlia has reminded me of the Christmas reds that are in the Poinsettias, hence the title.  I love Dahlias, but with all those petals, it's very time intensive, so they don't make to many appearances on my blog.

Sweet Baby Brier

Sweet Baby Brier
April 2005 ~ November 2014

I have lost my sweet boy, Sweet Baby Brier,
due to complications from Degenerative Myelopathy.

He was my constant companion.
He was my Search and Rescue dog.
He was my little swimmer.

I loved him so much.
My heart has been broken.

Now he is in Heaven, with Baby Thorn.
Run boys run.  Run as fast as you can....
