Occasionally when I am out and about I am literally stopped in my tracks by a site that grabs me. As my family can attest, I carry my camera with me for these precise moments. So often the photos I take become the inspiration for an eventual watercolor painting. These are the moments I don't want to let pass by. Here are a few images that inspire me to paint...
I love these Poppies. The “lacey” shadows add another dimension that will look wonderful in a watercolor painting!
On a recent trip to the Botanical Gardens in Naples, FL I saw this crane in a marsh. It will be challenging, and fun, to paint him in those beautiful grasses! He almost already looks like watercolor art!
A few years ago I traveled to the Greek Islands. Everywhere I turned was a breathtaking vista! This one is in Santorini. This has to be a painting!
After daisies I think sunflowers are my favorite. They are so happy seeking the sun! Painting this for sure!
I was walking in Aspen a few summers ago and did a quick about face when I saw this darling tricycle next to the pot of flowers. An all-American scene if ever I saw one!
