Posting a previously painted piece for the tea bag challenge this week. This was done some time back on one of the prepared tea bags mounted on to watercolor paper and gesso’ed. I used a limited palette of I think only two colors and tried following the marks on the tea bag. This landscape, pathway and mountain came to be. This piece measures about 6 x 3.5 in size.
Haven’t shared any “studio” work this week as when I was able to have some time I am working on a personal piece for myself. Would love to share it but it is a family tree piece which I’m doing as a mixed media collage on canvas. Due to the nature of the photos included I don’t want to post without getting permission from the individuals!
Hope everyone is having a creative and fulfilling week doing what you love!

The barrier in the sea of the mountains is It is like heaven itself. Draw with dark water color paint in general in the imagination of the details. We use dark watercolor paint on the paper to steer it. It looks real, natural, lively, the world seems empty, like this gloomy one. You all touch your imagination with your own consideration. Thank you.

I finished this painting last week and love it’s simplicity, both in composition and colorway. Sometimes I feel the image so strongly that it comes alive through my brush…this one did. The clouds are disapating as the storm passes with just one remnant left…a bit of light virga far beyond the horizon. Deep blue and violet shadows edge the lake as the orange glow of the sun reflects off its surface. Can you tell I really like this painting????
Larger than a CEO, but still original and affordable…available here…..
Blocking in the Azure Water is next. The most distant water is made more muted with a mix of Ultramarine Blue + MUD (2 parts Ultramarine Blue + 1 part Alizarin Crimson) + White. As I paint forward the colors become brighter and more intense. The water in the middle area is Ultramarine Blue + White and Ultramarine Blue + Pthalo Blue + White. Moving closer a mix of Pthalo Blue + White is used. The water at the base of the mountain and directly behind the buildings is Pthalo Turquoise Blue + White.
Please remember, you may click on this or any of the other images to see enlargements.
The peninsula of Cap Ferrat is painted with combinations of Pthalo Blue + Cadmium Orange + White and Pthalo Blue + Cadmium Orange + MUD + White. The village of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, with its many luxurious hotels and opulent historic villas…
