World Watercolor Month Watercolors

A few more watercolors, mostly exploring a looser style.


Yellow Floral
7.9" x 7.9" (20cm x 20cm)


Loose Iris First Iteration
9" x 12"


Loose Iris Second Iteration - SOLD
9" x 12"

The yellow one was just splashing color, then figuring out how to refine it. Probably better to go at it with something a little more definite in mind.

For the irises; the first one was done painting more in my usual style, but then softening as I went. Some parts I like quite a bit (mostly the leaves), and some not so much. The second one I did was with pale splashes of color wet-in-wet, then let that dry and paint on top. I lost my purples to the green dried washes. So the color isn't as nice, but again, there are some bits that I like (the leaves and the top iris.) 

If you would like to have any of these watercolors, just send an email to me at NelVanL@aol.com.
...and the watercolors continue.

July Watercolors

July is World Watercolor Month, who knew?

So there's loads of things going on, to celebrate and encourage watercolor artists of all ilks.
Just google World Watercolor Month, you'll get some ideas, including daily prompts for trying watercolors out.

In the spirit, besides doing some more note cards, I've been trying to paint more loosely with my watercolors. Not entirely successful, but trying. Here are a couple. If you see anything that interests you, just send an email. (NelVanL@aol.com)


Hydrangeas, Loosely
8" x 8"


Irises in Light and shade
9" x 12"

Happy Fourth of July!
May you have friends and family, picnics and great food, and good weather for enjoying the fireworks, wherever you might be this Independence Day!
