Painting Hydrangeas - July 17, 2014

"Pink Hydrangeas" - Watercolor - July 2014

Watercolor - I've been in a watercolor mood the last week.    I think because I was painting pastel and hit a couple of snags and hated everything I painted.   Sometimes it just helps me to back away and just have fun trying something new.   I love the loose look you can get with watercolor.   I guess in all my painting I'm more of a loose, impressionistic painter.     I love muted colors and soft shapes.     This one is part of my watercolor practice.  I really like letting the colors combine.   I probably did 4-5 different loose paintings - painting over the original each time.    Just experimenting but I like the effect.
