colors used: Olive Green and Phthalocyanine Blue

Needing to loosen up and stop worrying about creating a finished painting and this came about.  I love my new Winsor Newton Olive Green.  I’m also relearning about Phthalocyanine blue again.  I felt like they blended together really well.  Sometimes when I do these kinds of pieces I really like them.  I can see a few different creatures in here, what can you find?

 

Thanks for visiting and if you would like to add a comment I would love to hear from you.

11th watercolour – 1st ButterFly in progress    on Yupo                                 by CheyAnne Sexton  SOLD

 

 

Butterflys are very new for me to paint.   I have taken oh so many amazing images on photography so I thought I’d try a few.  I loved painting this on Yupo treeless paper.  I still have details and making it flow a whole lot more but, oh so fun.

colors used: Winsor Purple, Sap Green, Phthocyanine Blue, Chrome orange, Nickel Quin.

10th watercolour #Jan30in30 – goldFinch Flushed …out

January 11, 2015

for the January 30in30 Challenge

goldFinch Flushed ... out on paper by CheyAnne Sexton

goldFinch Flushed … out on paper by CheyAnne Sexton

 

This is from a photo I took this summer/fall, pre-autumn, late summer here  in northern New Mexico.  A stunning time for light and colors.  Deep golds that blossom into brilliant yellows in the southwestern sun of this part of the Earth.  I was fascinated  with the little gold finches that fly through eating the seed on the way south for the winter.  They stay just long enough to recognize their little body shapes and flashes of color, the way they flit through the lower bushes and Piñon trees. Many more flashes of bright yellow/orange into the tree-line. Siskin’s stay longer and aren’t as skittish or as flashy.

colors used: phthocyanine blue, Winsor Violet, Sap Green, Hookers green, Quinacridone gold Deep, Nickel Quinacridone by M. Graham

I’m wanting to use this as a study for a larger really layer painting.  I bought 2 nice pieces of 300 lb watercolour paper at my local art store, and I’ve been looking for a super saturated, many layered watercolor.

It’s been in my head for a long time, I’m just not quite sure which one yet

 

Thank you so much looking in, and if you would like to add a comment I would love to hear from you.

The first picture I took was after I had sketched it out, added misket and added the washy background:

Then I took one after I had taken off the misket and started adding all the blues I’m using, well just 3 blues:
