Impressionist Watercolors

Light. Soft. Delicate.

So very “watercolor-like.”

Watercolor Florals

The approach is really just a bit ‘softer’ than my typical style; verging on the Too Pretty side actually.

But. I had a bee in my bonnet.

And I have a thing for pink lately, strangely enough. Its never been a color I’ve been overly fond of previously. …… but things change.

 

 

Besides, it is a very good thing to get out of the comfort zone. To step into a new pathway, a new direction, a new color.

To loosen the reins on Control!

One never knows what the Possibilities might be, unless you try!

 

This Pink Impressionist watercolor was, naturally…..Zen Stroll inspired. My neighbors’ Roses, in bloom.

Confession. This wasn’t painted today.

But was created while I was still able to do my Zen Strolls, which was a couple weeks back. I’ll soon be out there on more strolls, when I’m off the crutches. Soon!

    1. thank you, glad that you enjoyed the work and the choices I’d made for the matting. With the computer, I feel more ‘daring’ as its not set in concrete. And I can always return to my standard white matting if I want! Thanks again, cheers, Debi

      2. I’ll be thinking of you Debi, do the exercises your doctor or physical therapist prescribes, silly and simple as they may seem. And if you have never experienced practicing yoga ask about starting an easy yoga class when it becomes appropriate. I’ll be looking out for your posts on walking through the garden of inspiration.
        PS I am an avid gardener who loves to paint flowers as well.
