Jerusalem Pots with Plants – Watercolor

Pot of Flowers in Jerusalem
When walking around the neighborhoods of Jerusalem, one can often see flowers in a pot outside of quaint older buildings. I enjoyed converting this scene of pots with plants on a wall into a watercolor sketch.

In depicting a scene with watercolor, the artist must ask: how much do I show? What are the colors I should choose? Do I work to extend the contrasts of lights to darks or do I keep the range to lighter tones?

Update: I added detail of the potted plant.

  • I like the bits of colors of the flowers, and how they contrast with the pot on the right. I also like the contrasts of the pots against the grey. The greenery stands out, nicely. Lovely watercolor!

    • I like how you used the word ‘contrast’ twice in your comment – that indeed was one of my goals. I don’t want a washed watercolor. Thank you, Lorri, for leaving a comment on this post.

  • Really like the muted colours. And with s light hand you’ve managed to convey the shape and weight of the pots. Lovely

  • Kathy, ah, glad you like the shape and weight of the pots! That was certainly a conscious effort on my part. I enjoyed your comment – thank you.
