Amidst the turmoil of floods and snow storms, I was wishing for some peace and quiet for those who are effected. Here are a few serene views. All are available in my Etsy shop or Ebay. (links to right)
A couple of years ago I took a workshop with Don Andrews here in St. Louis. He is a master of the figure in watercolor, with his own very unique style. We worked from models in the class and I had a bit of success. Unfortunately I did not come right home and do 10 more so I lost the touch.
We (the Saint Louis Watercolor Society) have a workshop coming up April 14-20 with Ted Nuttal. His class will be painting portraits from photographs and, this time, I am really going to follow through with practice after the class. Maybe I will even dare to share my daily work with you. (cringe)
Anyway here are the 2 that I completed with Don Andrews.
For Rembrandt and tulips! This painting is watercolor on Yupo paper that is a synthetic blend with a slick surface. The watercolor stays on the top rather than settling into the paper. It's a trick to paint on it, but the effects are mesmerizing.
Here is Wet Tulips, original watercolor painting, 12" x 16", $40 on Ebay or my Etsy shop.
And thanks to PenguinandFish for showcasing my spring floral paintings on her blog. She is a very talented Etsy artisan creating unique plush animals. Take a look.
