Years ago, before I painted in watercolor, I did decorative painting with acrylics and oils. Every once and a while it is fun to go back to those days and adapt that style of art to a watercolor painting.
I have been busy teaching workshops and classes this month and it is always inspiring to see the wonderful artwork that is produced by everyone and to be a part of the creative energy that fills the room. I have been painting for over twenty years and the wonderful thing about art is that there is always something new to learn and experience!
Soft shades of peach and pink in this spring blossom. We are finally seeing some plants bloom here in Colorado although there is change of snow this week. i always love this time of year when everything slowly wakes up from winter and bursts in bloom.
I think sunflowers are my absolute favorite subject to paint using the watercolor batik process. They are such fun, happy, colorful flowers and the drippy mistakes from the wax just add to the overall look.
