Winter Family Watercolor Fest

I love our family watercolor sessions. We have a great time painting, listening to music, chatting, and sharing good food. My niece, Jenny, is the latest addition to our painting circle. This was her first introduction to painting and watercolors, and I was blown away by her talent. Wait until you see her completed painting.

Jenny chose to paint the same leaf fairy that I painted a few weeks ago. Here’s a sneak preview of her work.

She’s a meticulous painter with an eye for detail and a delicate hand–a winning combination.

She really enjoyed working on the shading.

My sister Cindy also joined the painting session. Here she’s taking a break from painting to snack on some homemade chicken noodle soup. I’ll be posting the recipe next.

My sister chose to paint a fairy artist. Here’s a sneak preview of her painting. This is her third painting–she really rocked it. Wait until you see her finished work.

My niece, Karen, also joined us. She painted sunny yellow trumpet flowers surrounded by a lovely blue sky.

Here’s a close up of Karen’s work in progress. The colors are bright; the feeling is fresh and sunny. I just love this painting–which is only her second attempt at watercolor painting. How amazing is she? I’ll be posting the completed paintings next.

  1. Thanks for sharing your creative family time together. I have great memories of me, my sister-in-law and my young nieces and nephews in my studio throwing pots on my wheel (which meant getting lots of clay off the walls the next day!) It was so nice to connect that way.

  2. Jill, you have been blessed! To be able to share something that magical must be wonderful. Hope you treasure every minute of that. I’ll admit it…I’m a little jealous 😉
