18th watercolour #Jan30in30 – El Salto Mare in progress

January 23, 2015

for the January 30in30 Challenge

Wanting to keep up, but I know that it’s all about the painting each and every day that matters.

One I started before but knew to quit when it was flowing the way I wanted.  I’ve learned most of the time to just put them aside for the time being.

I really want my paintings to stay fresh and vibrant with life and color.  I took this shot and wanted to create a watercolor of this amazing white mare under the El Salto Mountain outside of Taos New Mexico from the git-go.

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

Prints Available 

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.

13th and 14th watercolour #Jan30in30 – Painting so many that I

January 16, 2015

am painting like I use to read books.  I could never have just ‘one’ book, (well maybe Jean Auel), anyway…. I have so many ideas for paintings that I can never quite settle on just one. And when you paint or I paint, in this case, in watercolours, there are many, many times you have to stop.!

Just stop painting and put it away, come back to it, give it a rest, think-a -bout-it!!!!

So……………….that’s what I’ve been doing, in the painting department anyway. The taking the photo and uploading and getting it ready for the web, and checking that you are ready to upload is a lot of time and effort and love.  I love what I do, but I swear, we just need more hours in a day, (at least once a week, instead of every 4 years) or to have to stop sleeping so much.  I love lOVE, Love to sleep, but I wish I could pick and choose.

Back to the paintings

Here are some finished ones and a brand new just started today the 16th of January.

for the January 30in30 Challenge
