after spending some time mixing a few of my watercolors, i decided to see how many color combinations i could discover using my FW acrylic inks. on the left is a color wheel i painted using brilliant yellow, scarlet, and rowney blue inks. and on the right is a little "study" of painted rectangles, to see what the colors would look like next to each other......and then it turned into a background for a red flower. i must admit that i'm not crazy about that big splotch of blue in the middle.....i kinda wish i had known at the time that i would eventually be adding the red flower......but then again, that's the beauty of the creative process, and just allowing things to "happen"......(but i promise you next time i get ready to paint a big blue splotch in the middle of my paper, i'll think twice about it.....heeheehee).
have a colorful, creative weekend!!!
I really don't know how you do it - every single piece of artwork it perfect. I just love the colours.
Have the most wonderfully colourful weekend
This post is just so inspiring!!! I love color so I was swooned in by your post. You are amazing!!
You do such AWESOME watercolors! I love the flower and that is a neat background!!! Hey...if you're so inclined maybe you could outline the red flower in white or something! Looks great as it is!
Hi Sweetie! I really love that painting, and the pretty blue "splotch" too! I wouldn't change a single thing...Your color wheel is beautiful also...I'm so happy you're back in your studio having fun! xo Paulette :)
I think this card is awesome! Your boo boo made a beautiful card with your flower. I think sometimes boo boos can be surprise gifts.
I love the inks you've used here Lori. I have so much to learn about different mediums. I like coming here and learning. Thanks!

Your'e so funny, your own worst critic, like all of us!! We all have our own talents, but I always wanted to paint well. At least as good as your mistakes...heeeheee!
Did you dilute your inks in your color wheel? I love color studies.
These colors look so fresh and delicious - really inspiring. Love your red flower!

I love the blue splotch. And I love the placement of the red flower. To me---it's all good!!!!!
i love seeing those vibrant colors in watercolor!
LOVE the red flower! I noticed it immediately and thought it turned out perfectly!
Funny how as artists we're much harder on ourselves--I didn't even notice the "blue spot" until you said something. Don't care--your artwork just makes one happy to look at it!
Adorable and Gorgeous!I appreciate your nice work. I love painting and painting is my profession. I love making flowers paints.
