A little break

May 9, 2014

To get my creative juices flowing again.

After I finished my last commission, a few weeks ago, I decided to take a little break from using my colored pencils. As much fun and challenging as custom work is, it can be a creativity killer sometimes. So I spent the last couple of weeks just using my brushes with watercolor and oil paints. Just for fun, painting what I felt like that day. Here are a few paintings I did:

Plumeria 12 - 5x7" - Watercolor - SOLD

 

 

Plumeria 13 - 8x10" - Watercolor - SOLD

 

 

Daffodil - 5x7" - Inktense Pencils - FOR SALE

 

Hydrangea - 5x7" - Watercolor Pencils - FOR SALE

 

Waterscape 1 - 4x6" - Watercolor - FOR SALE

 

I also finally finished this little one:

 

 Cherry 2 - 3x5" - Oil - FOR SALE

 

And got to work on this one too:

~ Painting #4 ~

A couple of days ago I murdered a watercolor rose. The paper didn't take my beating, and I ended up giving up on it.
However, last night, after a long and busy day, I decided to stay up, and give it another shot. I started again from the beginning, and I did my best to keep it as simple as possible. I'm pretty happy with the result, and I'm glad I stayed up late to have a painting to post today. What I learned from this painting: persistence!

Hope you like it too.
