He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands

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,
