For You

My first painting of year 2021...
This is an experimental painting - I wanted to try out a more loose and colorful style for a Portrait. Got inspired after watching David Lobenberg demo video... Mine is nowhere close to his style, I wanted to try out my own way of being colorful. I enjoyed painting it and had very happy with it. I also loved the way how this little girl is giving a flower to her Mom or Dad or maybe GrandParents..

Bee Yourself

Such a wonderful nature!! I tried to work on the motion of the Bee wings. Hope you can also notice it.
This small treasure is painted on watercolor paper panel. It is varnished, so there is no need to frame it with glass on top. It will look beautiful in a floating frame!

Date finished: 11/13/2020

Ashe - Focused

This little kitty visited us and it was such a character! Although she was only 6 weeks and only the size of my palm, she was not afraid of our dog, who is 6 year old !! It was so much fun to play with Ashe. She was focused on playing with the toy, which was above her. I took bunch of pictures and here is one of them realized as a painting.

Date of painting: 11/29/2020

Grateful Heart - Squirrel

Grateful Heart - Squirrel - Created 11/5/2020

Now this one is very special for me - inspired by squirrels in our backyard!! It is a favorite pass time to see how the squirrel entices our pet dog - Lily, who is barking inside because we have closed the door :) The squirrel knows it for sure that our Lily cannot do anything as long as she is inside. 
I saw this photo as free reference images for artists on Facebook and right away decided to paint it!
I cropped the reference picture to 4x8 inches. This specific size was required by the Randy Higbee show - "The Huge Show Small Art". Its an online show to be published on Nov 7th 2020.

I chose a Taos Mini Frame (Taos Black Mini floater frame), which was on sale.
The speciality about this watercolor painting is that it can be framed without glass. The painting is varnished using archival varnish and looks beautiful in this frame.

Yin Yang - Calla Lily

Yin Yang - Calla Lily - Created 9/13/2020

I was in search of painting something white in watercolors. Not sure if you know but painting white in watercolor can be challenging. This is because actual white color is not used. The white that you see in the painting is the white surface of the paper. So its mostly the negative painting technique used for painting the flower itself. The Calla Lily was perfect to paint and I found plants in our neighborhood - awesome reference pictures!!
