A study of Florals as Modern Watercolors

This was a set of images created in a Skillshare class called “Creating Watercolor Florals with a Modern Twist” and was a practice in playing with watercolor.

I have been working in watercolor for many years but was afraid to play with color. Being used to painting in oils, switching to watercolor was a big learning curve as watercolor painting is very different than oil painting and dries much faster.

A Fanciful Hummingbird Illustration

I created this illustration to practice using a limited color palette. I’m always looking for a way to add brightness and joy to my art. Hummingbirds and flowers make me happy so I chose that for the subject matter. Using contrasting and vivid hues of color, I digitally illustrated a fanciful hummingbird and flowers
