Daisies and Crystal by Karen Winters

Daisies and Crystal 9 x 12 – watercolor

I’m working on a rather large watercolor for a special project, but in the meantime, to have something to post, I did this quick sketch of some flowers in one of my cut glass vases. As it turned out I became more interested in the facets of the cut glass than the flowers. This is 9 x 12, painted freehand with a #14 round brush and a 1″ flat, nothing smaller than that. I didn’t do any pencil underdrawing because I was using this as an exercise to draw with the brush and do some negative painting.
The grays and neutrals in this were composed of the primaries used in the flowers. In other words, palette mud.
But mud can be a very nice thing when it’s used to harmonize and serve as a background to brighter colors.

    What you posted made a bunch of sense. But, think on this, what if you added a little content? I ain’t saying your information isn’t solid., however what if you added something to maybe get people’s attention? I mean %BLOG_TITLE% is kinda vanilla. You should glance at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they write post headlines to grab viewers to open the links. You might try adding a video or a pic or two to get readers excited about what you’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it could make your blog a little livelier.
