A painting of what is in front of me, from direct observation. 
I am finding it more difficult to keep up with this blog. I feel I need to simplify, this will be my last post. 
I wish to thank everyone who has taken the time to visit me here over the years. It has been a wonderful experience.
If I don't already follow you on other platforms, please leave me a comment and let me know where I can find you to stay in touch.

If you are interested in keeping up with my work, I mostly post on Instagram at the present under @celiawatercolor

I also will be updating my website more regularily

All about Roses

 View of Rome from the Pincian Hill watercolor on paper 23 x 30.5
My friend, Michelle Endersby,  asked if I would enjoy doing a sketch of a rose in Rome for her monthly newsletter. Michelle's work has the most beautiful art inspired by roses and nature (click here to view her work). She shares her knowledge about roses, rose gardens, most importantly her current artworks. She has an amazing collection of roses from her personal garden, homeland of Australia and travels. (you can view them on her  Instagram page)

Rome has many beautiful gardens. My thoughts went back to a rose I remembered seeing in the Pincian Gardens. I always hoped to have the opportunity to go back to paint this image. I was lucky enough when I made it back up there to find roses to sketch, it happened to be just as the sun was setting.  The light became golden, sharpening the colors of the already beautiful subject for me.

It's Not Just For Guacamole

watercolor on paper
35.5x51cm. 

I hope everyone's New Year is off to a great start!

I started this painting last year and set it aside for a while.  I worked from a cell phone image I took while preparing breakfast.

My work as it progressed, below...








My favorite way to eat avocado is on toast with a poached egg, I sketched it after Christmas. It keeps me full until lunch time.
