Put in several hours on "White Peony" today. White flowers are challenging to paint, because there are so many colors in them…only one of which is actually white. I added a lot more middle tones. Maybe I will finish up tomorrow… (The photo quality here is not great, but I had lost sunlight at this point and used my iPhone to shoot a quick photo to post.)
Every year I am inspired by the season to paint autumn leaves. The season is fleeting. It is my way of holding onto the season a little while longer. I am inspired by the beautiful fall colors we have here in the Midwest. 8" X 11" watercolor on paper.
I thought I would try something different. I love this print wrap I brought back from Hawaii a few years ago. I tried to salvage this old apple painting by adding the pattern in the background. I think it looks pretty, although apples are not typically found in Hawaii the way they are on the mainland. What do you think? It's available in my Etsy shop.
