This is the most recent watercolour and it will be the last post of this chaotic 2016!
I (unfortunately) didn't get to paint much but I did get to paint a few pieces that I'm happy with.
this is a set up with a few things that I bought at the antiques fair that comes to town the second Sunday of every month.
I found the rusty vase and the small cooper piece very attractive and bought them for my collection of things I could use for painting...
I'm very satisfied with this painting but I also have to admit that I wasn't careful enough planning and that's why it ended up square!
I'm seriously considering this painting for the up to 3 paintings that we are allowed to show in the SCWS this coming 2017.
it measures 15"x14" it was painted on arches (cold pressed) and it was finished on Dec. the 12th '16

this is a favorite of mine..
A watercolour that maybe a little bit difficult to understand...
I think that someone who creates should put in paper or canvas his (her) craziest ideas.
I wanted to paint a light bulb for a while but didn't have a clear idea of what I wanted to do.
then one day,going through my photos I saw a little Yellow bud and I immediately knew what was I going to use it for.
I had this hand made paper that was given to me and found a few round pieces and decided to use one of those.
I was a very motivated and inspired when I painted this and for somereason,I love this painting!
it is a small watercolor and I hope to get it framed soon.
I hope to include this piece for the next SCWS show.
I finished this on Nov.the 2nd '16
this is something that I painted a month or so ago...
I thought that I'd do something else to it,maybe adding a little bit more of color to the flower...
it didn't look well since I started it,for some reason the sketch was a little bit difficult and I actually had to leave two more roses out.
I just wasn't to excited from the beginning,I started with the rose and then I went crazy splashing colors and adding water to keep the paper really wet,I just let the paint do "his" thing. I've been looking at it for more than a month and decided to leave as it is...
I used hot pressed (arches) and I used a whole 14"x20" but I had to crop it because there were areas that didn't look right.
it is not dated,but finished it sometime in October. '16
