My son, Nick, challenged me to try something different in watercolor as a painting for him. He requested something like “space” or planets or the world. Well – that’s a pretty wide open request, so I asked him to show me some examples of things he liked, and he sent me a few ideas.
I really loved what he had found, so I used one as an example to try to recreate it Jodi-ish. This painting is done on 10×14″ 300 lb Arches Cold Press. I used Winsor & Newton Cobalt Blue, Cadmium Yellow and New Gamboge, Windsor Violet, and Burnt Sienna watercolors. I also used liquid frisket to mask off some white spaces I wanted to be certain to preserve.
I’m excited to mat and frame it for him!
In full respect and disclosure to the original artist, to view and/or purchase the original art print that inspired this, prints are available here at a home decor shop called Artollo. It appears the artist is Elena Romanova, who goes by Fairy Somnia, and I am a new total fan of this young lady from London! Her loose, impressionistic style is my favorite way to paint. I hope she appreciates the shout out and my admiration of her work.
Cheers & Hugs,
