Watercolour painting of trees silhouetted against a starry moonlit sky. Painted on high quality 8″ x 10″ (20cm x 25cm) watercolour paper. Available for purchase via my Etsy store.
This week’s topic over at Inspire Me Thursday is Moon. I immediately knew what I was going to paint (although the finished product varied slightly from what I had in my head, as is often the case).
I have titled this work “Tipped with Silver”. It doesn’t show up too well in this picture, but the edges of the tree branches have been given a very thin silver outline.
This Sunday was my first visit to the Springfield Lakes Art Group, and I had a great time! This week Sally Harrison came along to teach us all some techniques, and our focus was colour mixing. We were given a strip of paper from a famous painting, and our task was to try to make the strip “disappear” by matching the colours. I found it very challenging! My strip of paper was from a painting by Camille Pissarro, although I’m not sure which painting it was. This is what I came up with:
I had a lovely time and learned a thing or two. Many thanks to everyone at the Springfield Lakes Art Group, and especially to Sally Harrison – you can check out her beautiful artwork here.
I would like to share with you a new series I have been working on – “Moons of Jupiter”.
This is a set of 4 watercolour paintings based on the 4 Gallilean moons of Jupiter – Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto.
These paintings have been framed, and are $100 each, or $300 for the whole set.
