Circular Flowers

I like to paint lots of different ways. Sometimes I paint loose with flowing water and see where it takes me and sometimes I paint very tight and controlled. 

Here's how I worked on a very controlled painting of circular flowers. First I drew overlapping circles in pencil using a circle template then I drew various flower shapes with a micron pen.

I painted the flowers first and then the background.

Hello 2017

Where have I been! The fall got away from me with teaching and life and so not much art being done by me. I miss it and so of course I'm determined to do a painting a day in 2017. I'm already a day behind but here's my first one of the year and I'm happier already!

Started in a journal with watercolor...

and used these cool markers on top. They have a wonderful tip that makes a beautiful brush-like line.  (Thanks Phil) Plus if you get bored you can put them together like legos :)

First the watercolor

Then the markers

Then a micron pen for the details. A happy start to 2017!
