Blueberry Branch

I did a Blueberry painting earlier and wanted to try another one with just the berries. Painting the berries was lot of work. I wanted to try out a different background. My end result for the background is not what I envisioned in my mind. But still pretty happy with the original painting!

Aloe 2022

On Memorial day weekend, I had a chance to participate in Artist Demos at Chemer's Gallery in Tustin. It is a tradition that after HeART of Orange County juried show ends, artists are invited to do demos on the closing day of the show. I was happy to be juried in and also to participate in Artist Demo. It is a great day to interact with other artists and watch their process of creating art. I chose a simple image of Aloe that I had bookmarked for painting long time back. Below is the final painting that came out! Greens were quite challenging. But I love how the painting came out.

Colorful Succulent 2022

This one I had painted last year, but somehow did not like it after the painting was complete. You can see the earlier version at the end under "BEFORE".
So what I did was tore the paper on left and right to create an interesting angle. Also I painted the background darker, so that the leaves of this succulent would show prominently. I definitely like it better this way...

Colorful Marbles

This is a different subject for me to paint, so a bit challenging. But I had fun doing it. Watercolor paper is mounted on masonite board. So I will be varnishing this painting, that way I can frame it without glass.

Sunflower 2022

I was hoping that I could finish up this painting as last painting of the year 2021. But I am glad it became the first painting of 2022 !!
I love the warmth this painting projects and it is the perfect color to brighten up and hope for a sparkling year 2022!

Magnificent Rose

Painted on 11/28/2021

Roses are my favorite subject to paint. I am trying to get my rose to glow. I think I achieved it somewhat. 
Will try better next time.
I mounted the watercolor paper on masonite first. Then drew and painted the Rose.
It is not varnished yet. But once I varnish it, the paining can be framed without glass.
