I’m a day late and a dollar blessed

September 3, 2015

I’m a day late and a dollar blessed for Leslie Saeta’s 30 in 30 / 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge . (to sign up and join the rest of us).

Life is great and I’m painting what brings me Joi. I don’t have a finished piece, but I am a work in progress, it’s just that my progress is slow right now and that’s ok by me.

I am having so much fun. I really want to concentrate to get this little Chuparosa like I see her in the image I captured of this sweet little thing,  So light and magical, all glowing in the pink and orange reflections from the morning light just rising over the mountains and touching the tips of these incredible flowers.  It’s been a long time since I really got into little bitty details, but it’s cool and very meditative.

This next image is so intriguing to me, what do you think?

Looking at a piece upside down can really give you a different perspective and for me a way to see if I’m on track.

Hope you are enjoying the trip

A new watercolor in progress

August 18, 2015

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

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’

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.

 

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

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.
