|"Be my Valentine", 4 x 6,|
watercolor and colored pencil
This is my newest painting! On Valentine's Day, my husband, Keith brought home a huge bouquet that he picked up at Pike's Place Market in Seattle. They make the most amazing flower bouquets there, by the way! It was jam packed with tulips, pussy willows, statice and all sorts of beautiful greenery. I photographed it in the afternoon sun and was inspired to paint it. I loved the old-world, dramatic, dark against light effect it had.
The other two paintings I have at the MIVAL Gallery in Mercer Island are the teacup portraits I posted recently. These are also rendered in the same technique of watercolor on Arches watercolor board, with Lyra colored pencil on top.
