I have been working through the book Paint Yourself Calm: Colourful, Creative Mindfulness Through Watercolour Paperback, by Jean Haines. I am trying to find a loose way of painting in watercolor that doesn’t stress me out. I have noticed that I make more of a mess and my hands get pretty dirty! Most of all, I am actually enjoying myself. Here are a couple of pieces I finally finished off this afternoon.
These are Dandelions – WC on Bockingford – 3×6 inches (approx.)
I made the grasses first and added the flowers afterwards. This is from a lesson. As this is quite small, I might use it for a card.
Tulips in a field – WC on Bockingford – A4
This is one I did on my own. They could have easily been made into poppies. Only 4 colors used here: Daniel Smith Cadmium Yellow, and the rest W&N viridian, alizarin crimson and hookers green. Also used a bit of cling film.
I have also painted a few more (for another post) and am waiting for paint to dry. I think waiting for paint to dry is the hardest part! I might go and make a cake now! Hope you enjoy these.
