Hiya, Here are my two latest finished pieces of original watercolour artwork:
'Untitled' Original Watercolour Painting 12" x 9" © Stacey-Ann Cole 2013
'Summer's Evening' Original Watercolour Painting 11.7" x 8.3" © Stacey-Ann Cole 2013
Summer's Evening took me quite a while to complete because I was trying to deal with the problem of the lady looking like she was floating above the ground. I came up with the idea of her standing on something but don't ask me why I chose a toadstool as I'm not entirely sure. Maybe I thought it went with the slightly whimsical theme of the rest of the painting? But I think I got there in the end.
It did occur to me after finishing the toadstool that I could have added wings onto her and turned her into a fairy of some sort which could have explained the floating, right? :-)
The first painting shown above was well within my comfort zone and didn't really take me that long to complete. I enjoyed adding layers of paint and of course I enjoyed painting her afro hair!
In the meantime, any ideas for a title of the first painting above? Figuring out titles for my work is not really one of my strong points.....Thanks in advance!
