Sweet Peas Barn Watercolor Painting



 
I was going through my box of photos I've had for years, before digital cameras.  I like going through the photos and being able to hold them in my hands, sorting through them.  I found a photo of this barn I took years ago (1998 I think) coming back from a workshop I took with Claudia Nice at her Brightwood Studio.  It was really fun. I think I need to find a workshop to attend soon.

Green Guardian Window Watercolor Painting

 
This is my entry for this week's Daily Paintworks Challenge, which is "Window".  It took me a while to figure out what to title it.  I wanted to paint it because of the green metal in the window and the brick.  It reminded me of a building from the middle ages.

Vermilion Daisies Watercolor Painting

 
Getting bolder with color and felt orange yesterday.  Not quite vermilion, but I liked the name better than "Orange Daisies".  I think maybe the centers are vermilion.  This painting is up for auction in my DPW Site here
You can find my original paintings for sale here

Watercolor Apple Paintings

 
I finished my apple studies this week.   I learned a lot with mixing the colors for the red apples, especially the red delicious.

 
I drew the apples in colored pencil before painting them. 

 
Red delicious are my favorite apples to eat.

Golden Delicious Apple Watercolor

 
I bought a selection of apples this week to paint.  I haven't eaten a golden delicious in a while so wanted to paint that first so I can eat it first.
