poppies in watercolor

Keeping things simple today. No shading, no fancy watercolor tricks, just plain, solid color on a white background. The keep-it-simple (KISS) rule always works. This painting–which was inspired by a pillow case that caught my sister’s eye–is for my sister’s new home. She wants to add a touch of orange in every room, and I’m happy to oblige. I can’t wait to pull up a chair and have a cup of coffee with my sissy in her new kitchen.

    • Thanks, Angie. I used to follow another watercolor artist for several years. She inspired me to learn how to use watercolors. If you have a hankering, definitely give it a try. I find it very relaxing.

  1. Wow, it’s really cool and so different! The design is terrific. I love how some of those vine-ferny things look like they could be shadows. Wonderful color too!

    • Thanks, Cindy. I thought it might be nice to show a different style of work. I received my new Copic pens in the mail this week along with some paper made specially for them. I experimented with them a bit and was able to do some rudimentary shading, but there’s definitely a big learning curve to mastering them like you have.
