for the January 30in30 Challenge:
I have been learning quite a bit from this experience already,
1st: don’t get hung up in the details
2nd: if what you ‘thought’ you were going to paint that day
is not what you ‘want’ to paint that day……..
Then………Paint What You WANT to paint that day.! hands down
This watercolor here today is really special to me, first,
this is my FIRST hummingbird EVER in WaterColour. I have loved these little magical creatures since my first trip to the Rocky Mountains, way back on a trip to Colorado from the Missouri mid-west when I was 17. wow are they incredible or what?
And second because the flower part of this painting was created back in 1984, the year of my daughters birth and an incredible friendship that blossomed instantly that year as well. My husband at the time bought me a workshop in watercolor after our second child was born and a painter, me, was born. But the really cool part is a woman/sister-of-my-heart/instantaneously became friends and out of that super wonderful friendship we painted and drew together. amazing stuff, when you are with two babies under two all day, ‘mama-mia’.
And the green leafy part on the bottom and the underpainting of the flowers, I painted in Chris’s house of an evening when I was able to just be me…………………
and now I finished it by adding this little magical chuparosa that visit’s our yard (my honey’s and my yard) where the chupas want their lamacrack (we call it) They fuss and fight over it and therefore are all around our flowers gardens all summer long.
colors used: Hookers Green, Opera Rose, Sap green, China Crimson, Payne’s Grey,
