New painting

Inspired by more flowers from my garden, my latest watercolor painting is entitled Blossoming. The flowers are Matrix Asiatic Lilies and the blossoms just glow with vivid color.

This painting was a bit of an experiment, as I used 400 lb. cold press Arches watercolor paper, instead of my usual 140 lb. It was definitely a different experience. The paint really absorbed into the paper quickly. No warping or bubbling of the paper, which was nice, but it was more challenging to get crisp edges and paint all the fine details that I love to paint.

New Painting

Here’s my latest watercolor painting, entitled Cherry Plum Blossom. It’s based on a photograph I took, this past spring, of our Cherry Plum tree. The buds start pink then turn into white blossoms. (The tree is now covered with plums!)

I only use transparent watercolors and no white paint, so all the white you see was carefully preserved with negative painting and using a little resist on the stamen.

New painting

“A painting is never finished. It simply stops in interesting places.” – Paul Gardner

This is true about my latest watercolor painting, entitled Dragonfly. I decided to let the background remain purple, instead of adding additional layers as I originally intended. The painting is based on a photograph taken at Glen Lake, in the Adirondacks, last autumn. The dragonfly was a surprise that I did not even notice, until I enlarged the photo to look carefully when I began my original sketch.
