Cattails Painting

I haven’t been happy with most of my watercolor efforts this last week. Partly because I was deliberately keeping them simple while trying out some new techniques and colors. Anyhow this one I am happy with. It’s a continuation of my cattail obsession. for me this is a very loose style, something I’m working on. DS Undersea Green on Winsor and Newton HP paper. Outlining was done with a Pitt artists pen. I’ll probably post some of the less successful pieces later..

Solar Wheel

Just a quick sketch playing with colors and trying for “looseness”. Overall I like it but I’m always nervous about intense colors. I’m never sure how they will be seen by others. But then I remind myself of all the hideous color schemes I’ve seen in art museums.

About three inches in diameter on Winsor and Newton Professional paper. Colors are Daniel Smith Quinicridone Violet, New Gamboge Yellow, Pyrrole Orange, and Pyrrole Red.

New Cattail Painting/Design

I’m going to call this done. This is an old design that I wanted to redo in Daniel Smith watercolors and on Winsor and Newton professional paper.
