New Works in Watercolor --- ALL SPLASHY and SUMMER




I have been working on new watercolors... trying to get my mojo back.
It's more difficult than I thought~!

I haven't done much watercolor in the last years... except a piece or two here and there.

Now...I'm trying to put together a body of work -- that makes a substantial statement about the Everglades.

I'm also getting a little distracted with doing images from the Virgin Islands!

So.. here are my first few attempts. Some of them - I like better than others. Others are leading to promising directions.

Come here - to this blog often -- and I will show you the progression of my new show.

Carol, your watercolors always make me smile. I enlarge the paintings and look closely as the beautiful way you blend your colors or leave them to move in the wet-in-wet washes.

Wonderful works Carol, full of colour and movement, specially the studies of drops. Congratulations!
