Watercolor Fruit and Flowers

While I LOVE creatures, especially furry ones and feathered ones, I admit that they are fairly challenging to paint (the fuzzy fur, the fluffy feathers, and those EYES…..)… 

When I first started painting, flowers did not strike my fancy. But now that I am learning to do more detailed (sort of almost realistic) watercolor, flowers and fruit are actually very interesting. I love the bright colors and the shadows and highlights.

So I have been enjoying the tutorials in Anna Mason’s School of Art. Here are some more of my completed pieces from the last few weeks.



Blue Anemone


The tulip, finished today, was inspired by a beautiful bouquet that my daughter-in-law brought to my home for the final session of the Ford Girls Book Study (we read the book “Giddy Up, Eunice” by Sophie Hudson and discussed it together). The four of us: Myself, my daughter-in-law, granddaughter, and granddaughter-in-law.
