Blueberry Delight

 I have been having so much fun in my classes....painting and photography.  Lots of action around
here.  I know I have been quiet on the blogging front but I have been making lots of art.
I am presently working on two blueberry watercolors.  They are both in the first washes.


 Here is the second one.  
Yes, I know they look VERY pink but that will all even itself out
as I apply more washes. 
 I am painting these two in pure watercolor.  You will understand
why as you  keep on reading this post.


 This is a watercolor and gouache with ink that I did this past summer.  I kept applying thin layers of
white gouache around the edges until I liked the blurrrrrrr....mainly because I did not like the fact that
I painted it to death with the gouache.  Gouache does that to me once in awhile so I just faded it out 
and left a focal point and of course, added a digital frame. 


 Another one.....watercolors and wax pastel.  Again using  white gouache in the periphery


This one is gouache and wax pastel and yes, you guessed it......white gouache in the periphery here too.
I had fun experimenting with mixing my mediums.

I am sharing this with Paint Party Friday and Nature Footstep.

Hope you are doing well and having a good start to your week.

To me, there is absolutely nothing like watercolor!! I'm so envious of your talent, Cynnie. I LOVE each and everyone of these blueberry "gems." And the gouache one reminds me of photography.
