  4. Okay Celia! You are one rocking artist! So very pleasantly surprised to see the so very beautiful drawing of "Mary!" Of course I love so much about this piece! Great joy "seeing" what you decided not to draw! So very important to leave something for the viewer to complete in art! Bravo!
    Now, these two watercolors are no surprise! Which is great! Like Wendy mentioned they have so much of your very colorful distinctive style that I am coming to love and maybe even expect!!! Wow! I love the way you use the medium. Fluid! Again the colors are dramatic! Outstanding my art friend!
    Keep them coming buddy!
    Lover Of Color Michael!

  6. Fantastic work, Celia. Love the colors in the watercolors--such blues and yellows. And that stripe of red in Sun Ripe makes my heart go zing!

If Life Gives You Lemons

IF LIFE GIVES YOU LEMONS watercolor on Fabriano Artistico paper 30 x 23 cm available
Now that it is summer, Amalfi lemons are in season at my local market. They are grown on the hills of the Campania  region, around Sorrento and Amalfi. They have a characteristic sweetness, a consequence of the volcanic soil, year-round warm temperatures, and perfect amounts of rain.

After rinsing the lemons, I set them on a kitchen towel to dry. As I went about, I would pause often to take in the soft delicate pastel colors. My purpose became to convey the soft light that comes in, with many variations of whites and neutrals to highlight the sunny yellow skin of the lemons.

It has also been helping me to do a warm up sketch before painting. I keep this sketch beside me to test colors before actually applying them.

 my warm up sketch
When all of this is over, I have a whole book of baking recipes devoted to the fragrance of these lemons ... I need to get to work!

A Rose Aglow

A Rose Aglow watercolor sketch on paper 18 x 26 cm

The rose in this painting is situated in front of my daughter's high school. As I was walking past it, the sun was hitting it in a way that made it seem it was glowing with a beautiful mix of yellows and pinks.  I recently purchased some paints from the Ecoline liquid watercolor line. I enjoyed playing here with the pleasant intensity they possess. With this type of liquid ink there is the possibility of degradation of its properties over time, I will keep it for sketching purposes only.

This is an older painting I reworked. I felt I could have pushed it more, I feel better about the result now.
Thank you for stopping by!
