My Mother's Hollyhocks is a transparent watercolor that I just completed. My mom no longer has hollyhocks, but when she lived in Amarillo she had a lovely bush in her yard. I always think of her when I see a beautiful hollyhock. I still love the white of the paper!
Solitaire was a preliminary study that I did to get ready for my demo. I didn't like the way it was going, so I reworked it and got back to my original intention, a loose figure study using guoache and watercolor on paper. I love the feel now and the nice opacity of the paint.
The Music is Good is the title of this painting that I worked on as a demonstration for the Williamson County Art Guild on Tuesday. I was happy that I got to see and visit with many friends and meet new people too. I am glad that I chose this pose to work on. I completed a painting a while back and used it as inspiration because I just love the feeling of the model. She is so relaxed and regal at the same time. I like that it as full of color and energy and am glad that time ran out so I had to stop.
