.............And Playing with paint

working with watercolors...(not my forte)
using a limited palette with only 3 or less colors
and brush only, no drawings

reason the sienna did not show here
but was used as a skin tone

I am not a watercolor purist, so I
also occasionally use Chinese white.

  1. your header (banner) is so lovely in its softness. I like your watercolors. I have done some in a class. I think watercoloring is the most difficult of all painting to do. It takes more patience than I normally have. I have done oils and enjoyed working with it. Any painting I do is for my enjoyment- seldom sharing- I like using acrylics a lot.

  2. Love these. Beautiful studies using few colors. I want to try this. You inspire me as always.

  3. hi judie♥
    lucky me to see these paintings!
    did you ask me who/which my favorite would be?
    flamingo dancer,
    and that is that,
    even though all are so wonderful.
    {the sun-shade on the woman with the hat is perfect}
    i miss you

    and i love you.
