More Old Stuff

I probably shouldn't show these....it was a less than successful attempt in an effort to loosen up my brushwork and deal with watercolor washes. I keep thinking that if I had just kept at it, I might just have learned something by this time!

This one was a bit more successful, but done with colored pencils this time, in an online class with the very talented Angela Jarecki.

Oh my Mary you do such gorgeous paintings. I love all of them and I am glad you decided to show them. I remember the face from Angela's class. You are such a good artist.

The flower on the left is DAZZLING and the eggplant and peppers painting makes me hungry -- beautiful. I've got to sign up for that class of Angela's...

"I probably shouldn't show these ... a less than successful attempt" ... Are you KIDDING, Mary? These are excellent. That first flower is a beautiful piece of work.

I think these flowers are wonderful. I love the way the colors blossom together. Very soft and peaceful.

Pippa said...

I agree, if I could manage that with water colours, I'd be pleased as punch.

Thank you for the courage to post them, after all. They are beautiful!
