I’ve been painting with watercolor for a few decades now. I love layering the colors to make them seem deeper than watercolor normally looks. Each layer of color has to be allowed to dry before another in used, so this method takes a long time. I would say this painting took a couple weeks to complete with a total of about 20 hours.
This is an original watercolor painting on wrinkled paper. The colors were layered in many layers in order to get the rich, vibrant hues you see here. I took the photo of a little neighbor girl of mine to use for this painting. I thought she had an angelic look even with dirty feet and clothes. She and her friends had been playing in the yard and they were dusty. Yet she had a natural beauty to her so I painted her. The wrinkled paper gave her a sort of stained glass church window feel. It was a fun painting to create and to make colors pop. I could see this one to be easy to decorate around in a home full of the color blue or in a home with minimal color. I would love to see each of these paintings of mine find a nice home.
The paper is 22” x 30” unframed, large enough to offset a large room or put over the fireplace or couch.
This painting is being sold unframed for ease of shipping.
