Lisianthus on Damask

"Lisianthus on Damask"
22" x 22"
Watercolor on paper
Look familiar?  I posted the acrylic study for this watercolor on August 18th. Traditionally, watercolor was the "study" medium for most artists back in the day.  It wasn't considered a stand alone medium until the early to mid 1900's. 

Being my first love, I sometimes hanker to paint a large, complex watercolor.  The photo already existed, the composition issues had been solved, and I had a sheet of Fabriano paper to use.  The table cloth was wiped out through a stencil I cut of the damask pattern.  Cool, huh?

This painting is listed with, and for sale through a Daily Paintworks auction.  Please check out the other wonderful artists on this site. Thank you.


Lisianthus in Crystal

"Lisianthus in Crystal"
12" x 12"
Acrylic on wrapped canvas

The crystal bowl was a moving gift from a friend. He moved. Didn't want it. Knew I would. I washed it and immersed my white lisianthus into the clear, warm water.

This was a monochromatic piece from the start.  I learned a lot about my bowl, and used it several more times with different flowers.  But while the lisianthus were fresh, I painted a watercolor of the set up, too.  I'll post it tomorrow.
