10 Watercolor pieces

I recently discovered that I enjoy very much making watercolor paintings. I have always been intimidated( or even scared) of watercolor because I always thought that it is very difficult to handle and you can't allow yourself room to fix something if you make a mistake. Although I have worked with watercolor previously I never enjoyed it and that pretty much suffocated the creative side of me while handling the paint. All in all, it was experience that I meticulously tried to avoid whenever possible. I never took pleasure in it and there were 2 reasons for that- first, because I thought myself not gifted enough and second, because I lacked the knowledge and experience. Now, for the gifted side of the problem I couldn't do much, but I decided to work on the second part concerning knowledge and experience. I signed up for a simple watercolor class, where I would learn the basics of working with this media. I found it quite a pleasurable experience, our teacher was great and I think now that I have better understanding of the way you work with this kind of material, things come more naturally and I no longer feel the discomfort of working with it. As a matter of fact it produces quite the opposite feelings- I enjoy it very much indeed! So I wanted to share with you the 10 watercolor paintings I made recently and I would be very pleased if you share your opinion on the subject and let me know which ones you enjoy the most.

1. A simple Bird of Paradise flower arrangement- now is the time to mention that one of the things I disliked in painting with watercolor was painting flowers! I challenged myself in making couple of flower paintings and to be honest I exceeded my expectations.

  2. Иволина, знаеш ли, аз доста се притеснявах да ги покажа. От много време не съм се занимавала с рисуване, а с акварел пък съвсем ( повече графика), но сега след като се запалих да опитвам и други неща, записах се и на курс маслени бои, мисля да изкарам един скулптура ако има някъде..просто попълвам празнините в образованието, което трябваше да получа, а нямах възможност.
    Радвам се, че ти харесват, това са опити на съвсем начинаещ, но се надявам по-нататък да мога да покажа и по-сериозни неща.
    Коя ти е любима?

  4. Ани от цветните ме грабва първат, а от пейзажните тази с птиците и номер7. Мнного хубаво си постигнала триизмерност. Чудесни каварели!

  5. Много са чисти! Възхитително чисти. А това е трудно. Аз имам малки забележки по отношение на колорита. Обаче аз съм направо луда на тема цвят, та не се връзвай :) Много за "японски" според мен - особено стрелицията и снега. :)

  6. Домошар, аз имам едни конкретни идеи за акварелите ;-) ама трябва да видя кога ще имам възможност да ги осъществя. :-) Това бяха по-скоро "учебни" таква, сега ми остава да си намеря моя стил :-)
