Frosty American Holly Branch Watercolor
I've been working on painting this branch of snowy American Holly. We have so many of these trees and they are gorgeous. The blues in this piece are Thalo and Ultramarine. I've stopped for awhile, this will give me a chance to decide if I keep going or stop. I may stop.I think it's pretty much done or I'll twiddle it to death.. (overwork it). I'd love to do a landscape in snow.. I'll bet in 2 days the snow will all be gone. (It's really good to go so quickly!! ha ha)
Here's my view from my art table window,so snowy now and of course my Sadie getting in the pool. Ha ha.. She was chewing on the pool in yesterday's post.
I tried the Dr.PH.Martin Liquid Watercolors in a freezing wash last night. Didn't work like I had hoped it's ok but very very granular. I prefer just the regular watercolor washes to freeze. Hope you all are staying warm and dry and in. Love to you,Diana
My class was cancelled today but I just signed up for another art show.. so that is good!!! Take care!
