Snow Dance

This little daisy watercolor is a fun little image I was demonstrating to a class ..The premise for this workshop was NEGATIVE PAINTING and also using wet into wet approaches.
I basically did not paint the flower, but concentrated on the background to make the flower appear.
Great fun!

This image is a 5.25" x 7" unframed watercolor

Forest Glow

Another demo from my workshop showing wet into wet techniques. No pre-drawing, which is scary to some artists I know, it was for my students as well I think.:((

But it is a fun way to paint. I recommend trying it, and don't get in a knot if the subject is a little 'off ' in representation, it's all about letting the paint follow the water and glazing color over color.

This one is a 9" x 12" watercolor on Arches paper

Prints are also available on Fine Art Amercia:

Party Girls

This one is also a wet into wet watercolor on Arches paper.

A fun one to do with no pre-drawing at all, just allowing the flowers evolve from wet paint.It's all in the way I manipulate the brush to make the marks that best represent the information. Great fun!

This is an unframed 14" x 20" watercolor.
$350 plus S/H
