Playing with Color

This little birdie expresses my sentiments exactly.  Just as little time creating at my sewing machine puts me in my happy place–something I haven’t had time to do a lot of lately.love-to-sew-originallogo

As with my last post, I’ve playing with the color on the computer.   The above painting is the original.    Below is the computer enhanced version.  I do kind of like the brighter colors which I can’t seem to create as well with watercolor.   love-to-sew-brightlogo

Which do you like best?

Day 3: Back to School

Even though I’m not in school, or teaching school or getting kids ready for school anymore, September always seems to be a time of new beginnings.  You’re never too old to love a brand new box of crayons!Back to School

Speckles

I’ve been having fun with my watercolors today.  Lately it’s experimenting with spots and speckles.  I see others creating fabulous backgrounds with oils, so I tried to create something interesting with watercolor.  I first tried the technique with the background only, but then it spilled over into the bird and flower.  I’m not sure about the final verdict, but I think I will keep experimenting.  Any thoughts?
