• Watercolor Painting of a Golden Pear and Feathers

    1 month ago - By Watercolorist

    I am finally beginning a new painting! It has been a long time! Since the first of July to be exact! I fell off a bike on July 11th and tore alot of ligaments in my left foot. It was awful and I also hit my head on the side of my old injury. Then three weeks later because I was so unstable I fell off the deck and did in the other foot! Egads! I felt so defeated by this I sort of gave up and did not paint or do anything. Just getting around was so major but I should have been painting. I feel bad I did not.
    So anyway, with that and low white counts and auto immune stuff I have been...

    I am finding it hard to find enough time to do a lot but part of the problem here is all the drawing! I have found some of the lettering on the book and am beginning to find the feathers in the vase. I think once I find the shapes then I will dare to actually paint but until then you know me, I am looking for the shapes. It is always how I work. So this is where you will find the painting today and tomorrow is a busy day with errands but hope by Saturday to put more time in! Thanks for following!

    I sure am having trouble getting the right colors but at least you can see I am moving forward and the surprise at the end will be a painting that hopefully is the right color! ha!! I am playing with the angles and background to try something new to isolate my set up and draw the eye in...I am still not sure how dark to go with all of this so I am creeping in until I feel it is where I want it. Now if I knew Photoshop I would be in luck but since I don't this is what I have to do.

    I have worked today but unsure if it even shows. Some days are like that I guess. The confusing book is sorting itself out...I now have to take back some of the checkered pattern so you can see the letters on top but I had trouble following the pattern so just had to go for it...still a lot to do there but hopefully that pattern will come through when I am done. I sure would like to finish this in a couple of days so I can begin the next one...I need to get several large pieces done and it is just not coming together as quickly as I had hoped! I just can't seem to stay in my chair and get...

    I am getting much closer to done now...it will be the long process of cleaning edges etc but only a small area left to figure out...the twine around the darning needle in the center. Hopefully this weekend I can start a new drawing and be ready to paint maybe on Monday or Tuesday depending on how much work I have to do in the drawing. So here is where I am tonight.
