This bouquet I also painted in February.I took the reference photo for this looking down on the flowers and the vase from above to exaggerate the pedals of the mums.The carnations and white rose diminish in the grander of the mums.I did several light washes on one petal at a time.
I did this painting for a nurse I work with. It is of her with her dog and her daughters dog. It was a fun painting to work on.for the flesh tones I used a mixture of Cad. red, lemon yellow and yellow ochre; alizarin crimson and burnt sienna; and for the shadows cad red,burnt sienna and cobolt blue.the dogs fur was light washes of yellow ochre and the second dog had some terra rose added.
Many people would not believe that this beautiful,colorful spot is in downtown London. Great shops and cafe here. I created this 8X10 with both regular watercolor and watercolor markers as well as ink.
This past January I signed up for an artist challenge to do thirty paintings in thirty days. I only managed to complete 19 but I am pleased with what I accomplished as I also worked about 14 shifts Nursing and had the flu for a couple of days.
The smaller ones are cards or 5x7 some are 7x11 and some 8x10.
I am mainly a watercolor and Pastel artist but I am open to various mediums.
I have been painting since 1992.
I have travelled alot and have sold works and prints internationally. My works have also won awards. I used to be a member and for a short time president of a local art club however I found the Politics and Personalities interfered too much with my time that could be put into my work.
I live on the east coast of Canada and I paint our local beauty as well as the Carribean and the Mediterranean.
