Cherry Lemon and Turquoise

Cherry, Lemon and Turquoise

This piece was created as part of a series of watercolors created for #WorldWatercolorMonth. Each day featured a theme for the day. The bright colors were originally going to be an underpainting for a colorful sky sunset, but when I saw them upside down, it looked more like a beach and as soon as I read the theme of Cherry, Lemon and Turquoise, I knew what that it was going to be a beach scene, not a sunset.

Today I am busy about the work part of art, getting them listed in my database and prepared for sale. And of course, as always on Monday, it is a #microblogmondays. A special welcome to those visiting from challenge.

Water’s Edge.

My latest watercolor was one of the many almost finished paintings that have collected at the afraid to ruin it stage.  As I first played around with the idea of posting works in progress I took this picture of its early stages.

 

At Waters Edge

I was so very pleased with how the water looked.  This lead to me starting several other paintings with water with  the predictable result that I improved with practice. Now I look at this water and wish it looked better.

I thought about going in and trying to rework the water, but decided that it was finished. The going in and reworking stands a much great chance of ruining what I have here.

There is a balance between my new-found joy at being able to go back into a watercolor painting and reworking it to pieces. So here it is, my latest work, At the Water’s Edge.
