|"White Roses" watercolor on paper 10" x 7"/ 25 x 18|
I have been struggling with flowers. I started a painting last week which wasn't working out and ended throwing it away. There was too much going on and no inspiration. It's also a nice feeling sometimes to be able to separate oneself from what we are creating and have the courage to start over.
Next, I chose this image for its monotone color palette, attempting to simplify things for myself. I've been noticing that I get more hues when I use less colors in my palette. Funny! I think it's the magic of watercolor.
Gratitude goes to the fantastic free image library at Wet Canvas where I found this photo reference to work with.
Today we celebrate Father's Day here in Italy. It's celebrated on the Feast of St. Joseph. I wish everyone, especially all the fathers and Joseph's out there a special day!
