Spring Flowers

My featurDaffodils and PansiesTulipsed image is a watercolor I did a few years ago of roses. I can’t wait until all the flowers bloom so I can do more watercolors. That summer I did the hydrangeas you see on my other pages and the daffodils and pansy watercolor as well as the tulip watercolor.

 

 

 

Spring Flowers 2016!

This weekend I spent a lot of time outside doing yard work and cleaning out flower beds. Mama DuckmamaDuck_4687 wasn’t happy with me trying to peek at the eggs. She sent me scurrying into the house and waited til I closed the door. I have a duck with attitude. She looked like she had her wing on her hip and was saying this is my yard. I didn’t get a picture of her in that pose as she was hissing and I was moving away quickly. Later I got this photo and I was actually surprised at how small she is. I am hoping to get some great pictures of the ducklings growing up, that is if Mama Duck lets me in the yard. This is going to be an interesting spring! Continue Reading…

Seals In Alaska

This week was in between my classes and I relaxed and just played with my art. Although I usually use my own photography, the seal painting is from a friend and I had a lot of fun painting it in digital watercolors over a sketch.

Miniature Donkeys

Several years ago I did a photo shoot at Sunwoods miniature horse and miniature donkey farm. It was interesting Miniature_Donkey_Family-3_001that the miniature horses ignored me BigEars-2but when I went to take pictures of the miniature donkey babies, the parents would both show up quite quickly and I had to take the pictures quickly before being shoved away or before one of the parents stepped in front of the camera. They were very protective and would check out their baby after I took the picture. The original photos are highlighted in my Cafepress store. These paintings are in dry brush watercolor and are my first attempt at deciding what I want to do with them. I do like the soft look of the paintings in general but will need to do finishing touches. I am still playing with them :). Continue Reading…
