Morning Stream

 Morning Stream II
watercolor sketch on paper
18 x 26 cm

I recently went plein air painting. I painted this same scene last year, about the same time of year and hour ( you can view it here).

I am hoping to catch the feeling I see of the early morning light coming from behind the trees and onto the water. It is very suggestive, hopefully one day I will manage.

I apologize for my absence from this blog. I have missed visiting your blogs and hope to be around to catch up soon!

  5. Great to see you posting something, Celia. The deep blues give this such a different feel from the first one. Nicely done!

  6. It looks lovely. And backlight is beautyful, I think so too. I use to lift the colour from the paper after it has dried to get light spots with soft edges. To get the feeling of the sun shining through the branches.

Sunflower

Sunflower watercolor on paper 8.5" x 11.5"/21.5 x 29 cm.

I couldn't resist buying this sunflower from the market the other day. It usually dies before I manage to finish painting it from life. It almost felt like it waited for me to finish: it started drooping only once I was done.

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.

The Mending

The Mending watercolor on paper 20 x14 cm The inspiration for my painting is loosely based on a photo from an on-line art friend for our monthly art challenge. The tomato pin cushion brings back warm memories of my grandmother who always lovingly mended everything on demand for us. Basic sewing skills can be crucial to important relationships.
