My newest and latest beauty.

My latest and greatest watercolor of a little chuparosa dancing over some gorgeous Echinacea. This is stage 4 with many more to go

3rd phase of new work in progress

This was the 3rd phase.  First being the thought and sketching, the choice of colors and paper and what I want to create.  I remember from college that my professor had us think clearly about what we wanted to do.  Even write it down.  I don’t do that very often, but it came back to me wanting to take this one slow and do it for me.

I want to create the gorgeous morning light that lit up these Echinacea flowers of purple, pink and bright glowing orange with a little wispy female chuparosa dancing across her stage.

this is where the idea started.  I love the stage of bright orange heads on these wonderful pinks and purples.

And I adore the background colors and feel in this one.  And this will be the little chupa I’m going to put in my painting.  Right now she is covered in the green misket and it will be very exciting when I get to the point where I can start to paint her.

I’ll keep you posted.

I’m also posting on my FaceBook pages

watercolours for #Jan30in30 – Finished piece ‘Winter Scrub Jay’

Needed to finish up this one and create a bit more snow feel about it.  I’m pretty sure I got that done, altho looking at this through a camera and a computer, makes things pop out at me that I didn’t really notice in the actual painting.

It’s always mesmerizing to hold a real painting, I get so lost in the colors and the way they play on the paper.  Pure and bright and very incredible to experience.   Part of the love for me of the watercolour medium is getting to hold and touch fine art watercolour paper.

Speaking of paper, years ago I found a really great video of Twinrocker Handmade Paper company and how they do what they do, But through the years I lost site /sight and now I’ve found them again, so I thought I would add them to my blog so I can get over there and order some of their Watercolour paper.  Looks amazing.
