Misc. watercolor projects
My sister and I got together to watercolor the same piece of artwork (wish I had taken a picture of hers, she is an amazing artist). The piece we chose was a watercolor by Alexis Levine (picture below). I don’t do too well on the loose watercolors, they just never come out right. One thing I really need to practice, I love how it looks.
Original by Alexis Levine:
The Northern Gannets watercolor came from a photo on http://www.ursispaltenstein.ch/blog/weblog.php?/C19/P45/
The rose is from a watercolor by La Fe.
The above are my watercolor pictures and below are the originals I used as reference.
Watercolor Christmas Cards
These are some of the cards I will be sending out for Christmas. The holly and mistletoe cards are my own designs from many photos on the web. I never used just one photo and for some I didn’t use any at all. The landscape cards are all from an artist (I think this is the name) Angaben Zum Verkaufer. They are on Dutch ebay and I don’t know the language and there was no translation tab. The two snowdrop cards are based on watercolors by Rachael McNaughton. I do reference the artist (if used) inside the card.
Study – Orchids
The first one I drew from a watercolor picture on Pinterest but it doesn’t say who did it and the link is to a company. The second one I drew using various photos as reference. Still need a lot of work to capture the centers of the orchid.
I watched Kristina Werner’s and Jay Lee’s videos on freehand watercolor flowers & Kristina’s banners. I did some practice flowers and leaves, really like the technique and had fun with it. The top middle I tried wet on wet, will need to practice it.
This is a small watercolor I did based on the above techniques.
