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

This is my Work in Progress ‘Dancing Chuparosa over Orange Echinacea’ watercolor

September 2, 2015

Really trying to make the deadline for the 30 in 30 painting challenge put on by Leslie Saeta.  I did this challenge back in January of 2015 and loved it.  I created 18 finished paintings and 4 works in progress.

So here it is September 2, 2015 and I’m sharing not a finished piece but one I have started in August and am still working on.

The previous post shared my start of this painting and this is where I took off the misket to reveal the little hummer that is about to get all of her shadings to bring her to life.

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
