Since spring is here, I am getting ready for spring with many pastel and fun spring themed paintings. In April I am working on baby animals in oil paint, botanical watercolors, and vintage styled watercolor and gouache paintings. I feel very excited to share them with you!
If you remember the photo of my orchid from yesterday, here is a painted version. I felt inspired to paint it. I plan to also paint the orchid in oil paint. But I really like the coolness of the watercolor mixed with gouache paint. Very vibrant and alive. I believe I will tone it down with the oil paint. IT will definitely present a different mood. I also believe the oil paint will give a heavier feel to the artwork.
