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....

A little different then what I usually do, in that there isn't any white whites.  But it painted a picture in my mind of fall closing in on us, and that one flower still hanging on....  Today was a beautiful day, but we're in the 40's by Friday...ugh!

Queen of the Garden and Painting an American Beauty DVD



"Queen of the Garden"
Watercolor on Paper
 
8.5" x 11" ~ Image Size
Click here for purchase information.
This is one of those rare larger pieces.  Bigger then my normal Daily Painting.  It's nice to stretch your wings sometimes and do something larger.  This is a lovely Rose and deserves the scale.  Love, love, love the shadow play on the rose petals and the leaves.  I've always believed that sunlight and the way it interacts with the flowers is the most important factor in deciding which painting I should paint.

I only have three two more dvds left of my
