I found some time to splash in puddles this long holiday weekend…. Puddles of paint that is, because the sun was a shinin’ most of the weekend!
I watched a video on painting sunflowers done by Joanne Thomas, who is a queen of loose splashy watercolor. I’ve really admired her style ever since I started watercolor painting about a year ago, so I decided to give her sunflower a try.
I painted it on a 10 x 14 sheet of Arches 300 lb cold press. I put it in a matted frame to see what it would look like. Such a difference it makes when you mat and frame a painting – eh?
Sunny sunflowers is going in our McKinneyx2Designs Etsy Shop – the original painting, prints and greeting cards.
Fluttering my “artist” wings, and enjoying the sunny, sunshiny summertime weather!
Happy Tuesday and short work week for many of us.
Cherish the moments.
Cheers & Hugs,
