The first in a group of seven small watercolors, 5" x7", of the wildflowers of West Virginia. These are painted to benefit a small educational foundation in WVA.

Frieze of Tulips

April 18, 2015 § Leave a comment

Sometimes one kind of flower takes over my imagination. This happens most often in the spring, and tulips are often the first and brightest omen of things to come.

This long and narrow watercolor is 7″ x 28″.

Lots of new work, and way behind in putting them online, like this 18"x24" watercolor of Hellebores.

Delphiniums

A new watercolor, size about 19″ x 24″ The summer has been just about perfect for growing good flowers of all kinds. I’ve always thought delphiniums were a horticultural tour de force, out of reach for all but the most skilled and ambitious gardeners. Some of the great beauties of the garden, however, so worth a try, since some nice plants appeared in a local nursery. Here is the result.

Watercolor

22″ x 30″

Watercolor paper at 22″ x 30″ is easy enough to find online. But larger sizes are difficult to locate, and it looks as though the only solution is to use a roll that comes in 10′ lengths. That ought to be big enough, at least!

So many flowers, so little summer. I'm painting all day, but more and more flowers need to be painted. A wonderful complaint to have, that's for sure!

So many flowers, so little summer! With a big show coming up, I’m painting all day and all evening. That’s a pretty nice complaint to have, isn’t it?
