Red Poppies Provence Wildflowers and Bees Watercolor and Ink Painting

Charming and Delightful: A flower painting meant to bring you smiles and feelings of joy.

Warm colors and movement, make me imagine the gentle breeze on a warm summer day in Provence. Whimsical painting, done in my signature style, of dip pen with ink and watercolor. 

Size: 12" x 18" inches (30.48 x 45.72 centimeters) on watercolor paper.

Palette: Warm yellows and red with touches of pink, blue and calming greens.

Signed: Yes! Hand Signed by Artist (Front and Back)

How I create my watercolor and ink paintings: I first do most of the ink work without pre-drawing anything. I go straight to work with various nib "tip" sizes and dipping ink. The objective is to be loose and painterly.

After establishing the ink lines I use watercolor to create shadow and light and vibrant colors, I work in layers. There is no erasing whatsoever, so everything even inks droplets that may fall are part of the art. Incidentals like ink drops are some of my favorite parts.

Finally, I add more ink lines to enhance certain areas in the painting. I then sign in ink and voila!"
