Creative Monday Challenge 48 and 49 - Odd Is Better

SPRING RAINBOW
Original Watercolor - 11x15

The Creative Challenge last week was to use an odd number of items in your composition. For Spring Rainbow I used three large yellow flowers as the main focus of the composition. I began this painting with wet paper and a free application of bright colors, placing the yellow in the areas I wanted the main flowers and adding some spatters here and there. When all was dry I used negative painting to define the flowers, leaves and vase.

Creative Challenge #49 - paint an animal of your choice in a nature setting.
