Imagination Landscape Watercolor

Watercolor painting of imagination landscape – exercise from One Watercolor a Day. The imaginary landscape takes place on an autumn day in New England – colorful foliage on a windy, uphill road. Influence of da Vinci drawing of a copse of birches.

Flowers Watercolor Exercise – Nasturtium

Flowers watercolor exercise from One Watercolor a Day: observe favorite flowers, paint petals in bright colors, add contrasting colors to the background. I then added wax crayon and pencil marks (also part of the exercise) to add a bit of line for detail. The flowers I observed are the nasturtium (edible) growing between our sidewalk and street that I planted in June.
