Spring Flowers in Watercolor, still lifes

Saturday unexpectedly turned out to be an awesome sunny beautiful day. Since I had to be at the studio anyhow to meet buyers I decided to paint as many watercolors as I could. Here are a few of the ones I did in the morning. I cut all these flowers, mostly Rhodie's, out of my yard and put them in buckets to take to the studio. 6x6 w/c on hot press arches paper sold

I have these dinner plate size Tree Peonies just coming out. I try to paint them every year and can never seem to get the vibrant color right. 6x6 w/c on h/p arches sold

Thank you Dianne! Your oils are very expressive. I think I have a lot to learn from you. I will be visiting your blog often.

Rob,
I am finally having time to visit your blog again and I love this collection of watercolors! I wish I could see the paintings - and the flowers - in person. I miss the change of seasons and especially the newness of spring! Maybe the colors seem brighter this time of year in contrast to the drab of winter... change is good I think!

Robin Weiss said...

Thank you Annie! Yes, change is good and I am looking forward to experiencing the beautiful country of Uganda! That will be quite a change for me!

See you soon!

Hey Rob! Good to see you are out there making little white stripes on your neck!! ;-)

Also, it's good to see you are movin the brush again. I have been doing some very serious (and tedious) watercolor work these last two months after our trip to NYC. This serious painting stint is long overdue!

Cheers, Bud! Hope all's good at your end.
