New Painting

It has been ages since I’ve posted any new artwork. Not only that, but it has been ages since I’ve finished one. As are many of my pieces, this is a watercolor abstract.

Swinging On An Apple Tree

Below is the finished painting of what several of you have called “Swing Girl”. I sketched this out in ink and colored pencil last week, and put her on a canvas over the weekend. This new phase of mine…doing silhouettes…sure is turning out to be loads of fun. I’m posting a few views of it, because one of them shows more of the blue than the other.

New Painting ~ Girl Flying a Kite At Dusk

This background was a happy accident. I was putting gesso over a painting that I wasn’t crazy about and started to see a cool effect taking shape. After I got it how I liked it, I kept it for a while…not sure what to put on it. My sister suggested a girl with a kite. I wasn’t sure if I was up to the challenge, but I’m glad I decided to go for it.

Watercolor & Ink Heart Mandala

Below is one of the new pieces of art from over the weekend. Altogether, there were four. For today, I want to share a piece that I began a long time ago, and honestly forgot about. I love making mandalas and other types of things in ink. This time, I decided to color it in with watercolor. The entire process was really enjoyable. Bet I do more with ink and watercolor in the future. I’ll share the other pieces as the week goes by. It felt so good to spend the weekend creating!

New Painting the Feminine Pieces

I am completely loving the work, process, and breakthroughs of Connie Solera’s Painting The Feminine course. Below are the most recent two pieces which I’ve done while working my way though it. The first is a simple, but colorful spiral piece which was done completely with watercolor. I’ve always had a thing for spirals! The second was done using a combination of watercolor and acrylic. There is also some graphite on there, where the kneeling lady is coming through. I’m just not sure exactly how I will continue to draw her forward yet. I’ll be sure to post when she makes her way all the way onto the page.
