Free Flowing and Beautiful

Ok I’m realizing that the more I explore worldly color and textiles, the more possibilities exist for me to share my work. The orange has a hint of yellow ochre but beautiful for a student grade paint. I’ve been seeing these abstaract tutorials on pinterest. You paint shapes and then use pens to build flowers or fish.

At least that’s what I’ve been painitng. Along the way I keep reminding myself of two important rules. There’s only make. Who says it has to be perfect? Anthroologie’s watercolor shopping bags and store decor remind me of play. On the bag there’s this watercolor design that is free flowing and beautiful. I want more of this in my work. I want all of my work to be this way. I also used dots and circles, random ones. Next time I’ll use the back of a sumi brush.

Here’s to lots more art and fun. The remainder of this year is all about creative exploration.

Floral Pattern with Watercolor

Diwali Sand Art or the colors of Mexican Talavera? Both. This pattern would be amazing on a rectangle platter. I sketched out this design. Tried coloring with soft pastels. What a mess. These colors turned out amazing. I painted another vase and my shadow/

I enjoy free style painting never really knowing what will happen. Watercolor surprises me every time. You have to be patient You can’t control the water clouds or the little textures. I do need to fix a few areas but that’s what the eraser tool it for. Thank goodness. Looks good! Can’t wait to add this pattern to the shop.

I’ve eyed an Egytian pattern and color palette. Lanterns for the Moonlight festival? I can picture them now.
