When Hearts Take Flight


“When Hearts Take Flight” (watercolor on paper, 7″ x 10″). This little piece began as a series of wet-into-wet washes. After the washes dried, I looked for possible shapes or hints in the direction that I might want to take. That’s when I saw the dove. I added shadows and forced shapes to come forward (hearts and ribbons)┬ábut left the dove basically the same soft shape. The color scheme is warm (oranges and reds) with blue accepts. “When Hearts Take Flight” is SOLD but prints are available on my website (under “Watercolor Weekly).

Into the Forrest


Into the Forrest is part of my watercoloring daily series. I’m working larger in this new series, using half sheets of prepared Rives BFK.
