Sunday Painting

I normally don’t paint on Sundays but I felt the creative call, so here we are. I painted a large piece of a waterfall with an abstract quality but I will post that when I am finished with it. On this painting above I painted saturated wet on wet and I had no idea what I was aiming for, I ended up with a remembered intuitive of a landscape. My camera wasn’t able to pick up the rich blues in my painting and so you see more purple than blue but I got pretty close.

Painting saturated wet on wet is one of my all time favorite ways to paint a watercolor. It allows you a lengthy time to “sculpt” your painting, it brings out the intuitive in me.

I started this painting several days ago and I am undecided if it is finished or not, there is no rushing creativity. I started out in the saturated wet on wet method and the next day I gave more dimension to the shapes. I am after the essence and not superfluous detail. Perhaps I will stop explaining this as I think if you have been following me long enough, you would know that by now.

*A word about photos. The photos on my blog are mine, taken by me and copying them would be stealing from me. If you find a photo that you would like to copy or use, I request that you ask me for permission and I expect you to give me full credit for my own photo. Thank you so very much.

  2. That first painting is incredible, Margaret. I could spend hours scrolling through and commenting on your work; there are so many paintings here that look amazing to me, but this one is my favorite. This is the semi-abstract type of feel that I’d like to somehow arrive at in my work. This feels hopeful and fresh to me and I really like it. I hope you like it as well. I see lots of growth in your work, really something to see.
