Letting my mind fly free, I made this abstract watercolor painting over a few days. Adding each element and developing each layer helps break the need for perfection. Of course, what painting isn’t magical with out the touch of metallics!
On March 8th we celebrate International Women’s Day for all the females who made a difference. I pay homage to all those firecrackers with a painting in my Female Silhouette Series that highlights women being the SUN, the light and warmth the world needs. Painted with delicate watercolors, we are reminded she is delicate yet fiery. How do you celebrate those women in your life that made a difference?
Embracing the female silhouette, I have used the inspiration from various pieces from the Metropolitan Museum of Art's collection. These are watercolors highlighted with metallics to add a layer of sensuality to the female form. There will be more to come.
A new year and a new painting series based off a boudoir photoshoot I did with Photographer Lori Berkowitz. My beautifully captured silhouette is used in the abstract watercolor paintings. Stay tuned for more from this Abstract Boudoir series!
On a quest to create a new piece every week, here's last week's creation! Using watercolors, a picture of myself, I traced and transposed, and of course adding the gold paint for that layer of drama, I think the shades of Green & Gold abstract came out with a glow.
I am dabbling in abstract watercolors. Using the technique of drawing a portrait with no breaks in the line, then adding watercolors to develop the piece. Here's one of the pieces, using FINTech metallic watercolors within certain areas of the painting.
Here's a new watercolor painting I created using irredescent paints- finetech watercolor paints. They helped capture the trippy nature of the lava lamp!
Enjoy this work in progress- a watercolor painting highlighting the lovely female rising in a sunshine glory.
