This is the latest watercolour I've painted.
not having any clear idea of what was I going to do,I started with the flower (a pink-purple poppy) it was so fun to work on it and took less work than I thought. after that,I wasn't sure what else to do and dug on my pile of photos that I sometimes use as a reference. I found a print of some landscape that I always wanted to paint but I never got to it.
My intention was to paint the landscape as real as I could,but unfortunately...I am not good at painting landscapes,so I just drew the shapes of the mountains and tried a bunch of colors... colors that I thought were as close as possible to the real thing...but...didn't work. LOL
anyway,it is a watercolour and I don't really have the measurements (the painting is being framed) but it is a biggy! this is possible one of my entries for the SCWS show Next August.
this was finished on May the 30th. '16
This is a watercolour based on a photograph posted on the PMP (paint my photo) website.
I wish I have had the courage to do some work on the background,but I guess I got lazy and didn't want to go into any trouble. the photo of the painting isn't too good,I had good light but for some reason the white paper looks a little bit dark. it was a very fulfilling experience to paint this piece,as I'm very pleased with the results.
the Original photo was posted by Terry Krysak. (thanks Terry) this is a watercolor,painted on arches (hot pressed) it measures 14"x20" inches and was finished on March the 25th. '16
you can see Terry's photo following the link...
I painted this small watercolour a couple of weeks ago.
I just decided to paint whatever was on my mind,it wasn't much...as you can see.
I've taken hundreds of photographs of California poppies and decided to do something simple.
It just seems like I don't have patience to paint "complicated" subjects...LOL
Even though,I took the photo in bright day light,I couldn't get a decent photo.
the background seems to be too dark and that's not how it really looks.
it is a 12"x9" watercolour,painted on arches Cold pressed paper and it was finished on June the 5th. '16

This is one of the few watercolors that I've done in the few past months.
I haven't done much painting,I have been a little bit busy and most of the time...
too tired after being busy.
I started this watercolor a couple of months ago,but for some reason I felt a little unhappy with it.
I painted the small metal vase and the roses and put it aside.
After several weeks of inactivity I decided to keep working on it,I actually didn't do much to it.
I just added a little bit more color to the vase and used some left overs from my palette to paint the background.
It is kind of simple,because doesn't have much detail...but I kind of like it that way.
one of the things I've wanted to do before is to paint a little bit more "loose" and this was a very good opportunity to practice and I also,finally;got my brushes wet...LOL
This is a watercolor painted on a very thick-hand made paper,it measures 14"x14" and was finished on May the 24th '16
