This is my second "hanging laundry" painting from the Virtual Paintout at Canary Islands. For some reason I keep getting drawn to these types of locations! It's out of the norm from the usual landscapes and buildings, etc., so maybe that's why. I like being different!
Just joined the online group Virtual Paintout and this is from this month's chalenge: to paint a scene from Google's map of the Canary Islands. So I've been vicariously traveling along the winding roads, rocky coasts and Palm-laden neighborhoods to find inspiration for another watercolor painting and here it is! Hope you like it! (I've only been painting with watercolors a little over a month now... So addicting!)
I really like how this cupcake turned out! This is my favorite painting so far. Used frisket for the first time for the sprinkles and outline of the cupcake, but need to work on my technique better. Want a bite??
My little Amish man. Wonder what he's thinking? This was my first attempt painting trees in the background and making a sky. I need to work on my proportions and perspectives next! Especially like how the blue/gray colors turned out on his overalls.
This is my favorite type of artwork that I do. I've been doing this "doodling-type" of drawing since my freshman year in college, when the teacher asked me to do something original in my own style. I think I succeeded! There's no turning back once that ink hits the paper, so I have to really think about each line before I draw it. It's all spontaneous and free!
Virtual Paintout's challenge for March: paint a scene from Stavanger, Norway. Here's my first attempt at a landscape! Used a spritz water bottle to create cool effects on the grassy area, if you look close enough to see...
