Elephant Watercolor

This was a quick watercolor I did a few weeks ago. I’m still getting used to using watercolor, but I really liked the abstract look of it. The color use was a lot of fun to play around with. I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out and framed it for my son’s nursery 🙂

Watercolor: Summer Flowers

Summer Flowers

This is my 2nd watercolor painting & I’m still using the pencils with a flat brush. I was just kind of experimenting with different techniques and getting used to using the colors.. I almost feel awkward using a brush and color pencils- just not used to it! There are so many ways to create different looks you want and it was all experimental. You will definitely find mistakes and places I wish I could erase, but it was fun. I’m excited to expand into this medium! Hope you enjoy ❤

Blue Flower Watercolor

This was my first try at watercolor and I only used 2 colors: blue & green. I used watercolor pencils and enjoyed them. It takes some getting used to. Watercolor is probably my favorite medium to look at (I could stare at Georgia O’Keeffe paintings for hours) but I have always been intimidated by it. It seems very delicate and complicated to achieve, however I also find it the most creative. It was fun to add a splash of color to my art routine!
