Thinking of the wonders of the ocean and imagining dolphins and s sea turtle among the coral reef of Florida waters.
Last week, I read an ad from Daniel Smith about an artist named Julie Karlsson who was promoting the use of Daniel Smith watercolor paints and watercolor ground. I have used watercolor ground but not a dark color. I ordered Mars Black but it did not arrive yet so I used white ground and dark blue as a background. Then I used several watercolor and gouache paints to come up with this scene of dolphins swimming at night.
I have always liked the colorful Aboriginal Art. This is my rendition of a circle of dolphins.
Here are the images of my third pillow. This one was a real “project”. I was very happy with the end result. Hopefully you will be too!
Dolphins and the full painting were done in gouache paint. Then I applied a light blue watercolor overlay.
It’s the first of January, 2015. New year with existing paints. Wanting to make 2015 a happy and healthy year, who better to depict that than happy dolphins swimming toward each other? Happy new year to all my blog friends!
