Creative Monday Challenge - Week 46 - WINTER

RED BIRD & HOLLY
Watercolor - 11x15

The Creative Monday Challenge for this week is to paint something that pertains to winter or the up coming holidays. We had a cold and rainy weekend and I am slowly putting up the holiday decorations, a box at a time. This will be our first Christmas in our new home in Tennessee so I am having to figure out where I want to put things and do I really need to have so much stuff.

I am sure that many of you are also busy this time of year so this will be the last Creative Monday Challenge for 2016! I have really enjoyed seeing all of your wonderful artwork and the creative support that you have given each other. Please feel free to continue painting and posting when you have time. Happy Holidays to all!

Creative Monday Challenge - Week 45 - WARM COLORS

SUNRISE
Watercolor - 11x15
SOLD

Since we are right in the middle of autumn with all of its glorious shades of orange, gold and yellow the Creative Monday Challenge for this week is to paint something using a predominately warm color scheme. As I was looking through my paintings to find an example I realized how often I use cool tones in my watercolors and when I do use some warm colors I still balance them out with a lot of cool tones. SUNRISE was the closest I could get with its bright orange and yellow colors even though I have cool blues in my trees. Hopefully you will do better with the challenge!

Creative Breaks and WHISPERS OF PINK

WHISPERS OF PINK
Watercolor - 11x15

We are in that time of year where getting ready for the holidays can take over our lives and leave little time for creativity and art. We just need to remind ourselves that it is perfectly okay to step away from the studio and tend to other aspects of our lives. That half finished painting will still be there in a few weeks and sometimes it is helpful to give that part of our brain a little rest and return to it in a few weeks refreshed and with renewed artistic energy.

FLORAL BLUES and Old Masters


You all know how much fun I have with these creative photo apps where I can place my paintings in crazy settings! 

FLORAL BLUES
Watercolor - 11x15

It was standard practice back in the day for art students to go to museums and copy the Old Masters to hone their painting skills. OK, so I am definitely not in that category but a girl can pretend:)
