TWSA 2015

A fellow artist, Carol Keene visited the Transparent Watercolor Society of America's 39th Annual Exhibition, and was so kind in sharing photos of my watercolor painting, "White Garden Queen" on display.  I am so honored and blessed to have a painting in this show, it looks beautiful.  For those of you that live close to Kenosha, Wisconsin, it is a beautiful museum and the show is up till August 2.  And for those of you that can't attend the show, Carol has given us a little tour.
Thank you Carol for sharing the photos!

Ruffles on the Forum

I have added "Ruffles" to my learning forum,
It's a nice "all levels" exercise for both soft, smooth backgrounds, and tight, detailed rose petals.

I loved the depth of the painting, achieved by the deep rich colors of geranium leaves, in between the bamboo shoots.  Lots of layers, lots of textures that help the soft lemon Dahlia glow.

Happy Easter

I was playing with color a bit with this one.  It's fun, in the cast shadowed areas, to really "pop" some color.  Especially in a white flower.
I hope everyone has a joyous and blessed Easter.  The sun is shining here!

Grapes & Silver Bowl Watercolor and New Video

"Grapes & Silver Bowl"
9.5" x 6"
Watercolor on Paper

This is a new watercolor that I just finished.  It was filmed for my watercolor teaching forum,
This painting is a nice compliment of smooth, the silver bowl, versus busy, with all the grapes.  Again, with a limited palette.  The darks of the background and silver cup really make the grapes "pop".
Stay tuned for tomorrow for some great news I'll have to share... ♥
