First, I did a painting of a yellow butterfly among a field of lavender. Then a blue grotto that could be from Greece or Italy.
Here are two paintings from this weekend. One is of a tree done in watercolor. Then I used Brusho to get the explosive effect of colors. The other is of a butterfly based on an original photograph.
This is my rendition of 2 sunflowers and a visiting butterfly.
Today I wanted to paint lavender again. To be prepared, I even bought some dried lavender at the store yesterday and one sprig is actually attached to this painting. Then I decided to throw in a butterfly who is visiting one of the live lavenders on the painting.
I went to the same park that I always go but this time I was told where the dragonflies hang out. I was able to find this guy in his usual spot. Earlier I had walked to the park and found the lovely, colorful butterfly. I could not believe how perfect that butterfly’s wings were.
Last week, my butterfly had odd stripes so I worked on another painting of the same subject. Also did a background wash of pretty green, yellow and turquoise colors.
