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

And birds, I love me some birds.  This little guy was inspired by a Field Sparrow that came to our feeders one day.  And only one day, I haven’t seen it since.  Must have been migrating through.

If you ever want to buy any of my art I will pay shipping to your place.  Each picture ought to take you to the link to buy it and then I will reimburse your shipping costs, easy-peasy.

Have a beautiful and lovely day,

CheyAnne

I’ve been neglecting my blog, my art, my exercise too.  I just cannot fit it all in.  How do people who work 30- to 40 or more hours every single week get anything done’?

I have been one busy Admin Girl, but it’s time to paint. If I can find my desk under the clutter before I lose interest again.  Wish me painting.

'Basket of Summer' watercolor on paper 9x12 CheyAnne Sexton

‘Basket of Summer’ watercolor on paper 9×12 CheyAnne Sexton

This was my first attempt without drawing it out first. Plein air painting from my easy chair looking out into my garden.  I did lay down some misket (I love that stuff).  And my kinda first attempt at multi-petaled flowers too.  Not so sure how to go about them.  I really like a few of them tho, especially the one on the bottom right and how it’s hanging in the air.   At least that’s how it looks me.

I went to youtube to do some research  and found a great 2 part video that inspired me to finish when I got stuck.

Painting Flowers Loosely in watercolour part 2 of 2 by Peter Wood

I watched the number 2 part of this first and then went looking for number one.  I love how he adds dabs and dabs of little bits of color to create depth  and vibrance to his painting.  And what an undertaking to paint such a garden as this.  I want to try this now.

Here is my second much freer attempt:

'White cosmos over Orange' watercolor on paper 9x12 CheyAnne Sexton

‘White cosmos over Orange’ watercolor on paper 9×12 CheyAnne Sexton

This one I didn’t draw or even add misket too,  which I am pretty proud of.  I just started at the top and worked my way down.  When white of the paper was there I created another flower or a bud.  Now I’m off to try more.

Both originals are for sale and giclee prints upon request.  If you click the picture it ought to take you straight to my Etsy store where you can purchase them.  Let me know you found it here and I will pay for shipping.

Love hearing what you think or feel so please leave a comment.

Peace n Abundance,

CheyAnne
