My sister’s first watercolor painting–completed during our Memorial Day family watercolor fest. How impressive is this for her first attempt? My sister, an accomplished sugar artist, said she imagined that she was decorating a cake. Watercolors on cold pressed Acquarello Artistico paper by Fabriano.
Since she liked the Poppies my daughter painted a few weeks ago, I chose this scaled-down version of the same painting from Fiona Peart’s “Vibrant Flowers in Watercolor” tutorial for my sister. She really rocked it.
My niece, Karen, chose a Tulip tutorial from Michael Lakin’s book, “Botanical Flowers in Watercolor.” My mother chose to paint an Agapanthus from the same book.
My daughter painted these Daffodils using a tutorial from the book, “Watercolor Flowers” by Wendy Tait as a guide. The addition of blue on the white petals really made this painting come alive.
And I’m working on this lesson featuring Tulips, Posies, and Hellebores from the book, “Tulips in Watercolor” by Fiona Peart. I’ll be posting photos of the completed paintings next.
My daughter, Greta, painted these gorgeous poppies during our Mother’s Day watercolor fest. The improvement between this painting and her earlier watercolor paintings is remarkable. And her timing is perfect–I can’t wait to show you how I plan to feature her painting in my upcoming Tangerine Tango home makeover. Watercolors on hot pressed Acquarello Artistico paper by Fabriano.
