This watercolor was inspired by a beautiful, exotic orchid I saw in the flower shop the other day. While I had a photo of the bloom on my cell phone, I painted from memory. I didn’t use any yellow in my abstract rendering, although the flower, as you can see in the photograph, does have yellow in its center.
This next piece was done in neutral shades of shimmery gray and brown/greens. I want to call it “Nature” or “Camp,” for some reason.Finally, this last piece is just a little study of evergreen leaves and berries. I love the pale blue/green with tinges of purple in the berries. They have a sheer, shimmery feel to them.
We’ll have just about everything packed and ready to go by Friday/Saturday.
Thanks for all of your well wishes for our move to Florida! It’s going to be quite the adventure.
