simple lines watercolor


I was going for a minimalist look here. Simple lines and colors. Not sure. 

Experimenting and learning...

I spent yesterday oil painting and so enjoyed it. It had been a long time. So glad to be painting again! I joined an online painting group to get me motivated.  Here is where I joined

Botanic Gardens at Peppers Creek

Painted in my art journal.  I had the pleasure of visiting the new Botanic Gardens at Peppers Creek in Dagsboro, DE- near my home. It was a lovely day. There are forests, meadows and dunes in the gardens- benches and paths.  It was peaceful and a real cup-filling sort of place.

Procreate painting

I painted this in procreate this week. What an amazing program!  No fuss or mess. I was laying down watching TV, no less!  It's the reason I bought an iPad.

This is a painting/sketch from my France trip last year. My sister and I went for 2 weeks. One week was a watercolor art journaling workshop and the other week we were on our own.  This sketch is one of my favorite places in Provence. Its is in Vence, the old town.

I tried to paint rust. I think the background overwhelmed the lock. Next time it's one or the other.
But I tried! I will repaint this.

Digital painting on my ipad

This was fun to paint. I used Procreate on my iPad. First I did the chair using a ref photo from Pinterest. Then I added the stones, using 1-point perspective.  Then I added a texture for the back wall but it was too plain, so I added the faded letters. I was going for that old vintage painted ads that were once popular.   There is so much to explore with Procreate. A simple program with so much going on...exactly how I describe baseball, a simple game with so much going on!

happy painting.   I miss baseball. And eating out in restaurants, and having friends over, and walking the boardwalk and the beach. This too shall pass...
