Another watercolor study

I once saw a painting like this...
and so I tried to remember just what it looked like,
so I could do a watercolor study of it.
I'm not sure if the original was done in watercolor,
it may have been done in oils or pastels.
But anyway... here is my watercolor study.
I try to paint every day,
from my own photos,
from original drawings I create,
from You Tube watercolor how to videos,
watercolor instruction books,
and whatever way I can practice and learn.
Studies of  other artists work
teach me a lot.
The Masters works
have many lessons in them.
Sometimes I just look at them closely,
to see just what they did.

So, how do you practice?

Savor the Day!

This painting is so dreamy and colorful and wonderful must be very pleased with how it turned out and you inspire me with your devotion and practice!

wishing you and yours a happy Memorial Day weekend

That is one super watercolor, Yvonne. Very, very impressive. I really like the elongated look of the ladies. A unique perspective always catches my attention.

I have done NOTHING creative in my studio for over three weeks. I seem unmotivated after the clean-up and visit by my friend. I'll be glad to get back to normal one of these days.

Have a wonderful and SAFE Memorial Day.
