Fresh View Watercolors

Attitude.  Willingness to view a circumstance untied to outcome.  I needed a new perspective and fresh way to see this watercolor challenge.

Watercolor Garden Sunburst

I may not have been so keen on this watercolor painting‘s original format and design when it first made its appearance last week.  It was a rectangular format at first, which didn’t do anything at all for the design.

But with a little thought and some creative alterations, things are looking brighter.



Cropped tighter,  and now in a square it creates a much more dynamic design.

Its fresh.  Its bold.  Its direct.

I like it.






  1. Yup. This one’s got attitude. It IS fresh and bold and boy we could all use extra triple doses of that! Confident brush strokes. No fiddling. Take notice, I am here, hear me ROAR! This should be on everyone’s alarm clocks! *waves magic wand to make it so* ❤

    • thank you so much! it might sound odd… I know, but I really have found with painting, success depends on what kind of attitude I have that day. You have a great week too!
