Impatiens – watercolor

Copyright ©2015 Deborah M. Zajac. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

Inspired by a watercolor by Jodi Jensen that I own, and fellow blogger  I pulled out my Watercolor paints yesterday evening to paint some Impatiens.

Here’s V1

Impatiens I Watercolor

Not happy with the top of the pots, and the floor, anchoring ground I flipped the card over and began anew-


Impatiens II Watercolor

I am happy that I was able to get the tile floor to look like a floor, and the pots came out better, but one pot is still a bit wonky. Perspective in drawing and painting isn’t coming easily to me.

I didn’t like the big green bush on the right so, I wet my wash brush and went over the entire painting muting the flowers, bush, and pots, and after it dried I started again.


Impatiens III Watercolor

The pot on the right is still wonky in shape, but I like the softer, more muted edges, and the greenery in the background I find more pleasing.  There will be a V4 on another day.

I found the an image online (Yahoo Images) of the Watercolor by Jodi Jensen that I own and have hanging in my family room which was my image source of inspiration.  My watercolor is quite different.  🙂 I hope to be this good one day!
