I started these African violets from life at my friend's house the week before I left for the workshop. I didn't finish it, and luckily the plant was still flowering so I finished it up today. Watercolor 11 x 15 on Arches.
I started this painting over a month ago, and I finished it today. We do not get many sunflowers in suburban New Jersey, so when I saw these last fall I made sure to get a photo. This is 11 x 15 watercolor on Arches.
Here are two more small abstract collages that I did to show my Thursday painting group the techniques we learned in Jerry Brommer's workshop. I hope to do one or two larger ones with them this week. I was happy with the purple and yellow radial design, but it took some work to resolve the blue collage. It didn't come together until I glazed some Winsor blue over it to unify, and added the whites with gouache.
I am a watercolor artist living in New Jersey. I am a member of the North East Watercolor Society, the New Jersey Watercolor Society, and several local and internet art organizations through which I exhibit my paintings. My favorite subjects are close focused florals and landscapes. I've recently begun teaching a beginning watercolor class at our local senior center.
