Books Bouquets Shadows and Light

by HouseofChabrier in Watercolor Landscapes

22" X 30" Watercolor on 300lb. Arches Watercolor Paper painting of a Still Life. A painting of my David Austin Roses in Blue and White Vases, some of my best loved old books, a candle for light, wine to relax, and oranges for sustenance. The beauty of life as it should be. The most loved book...The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam.

      These have so many small decisions that have to be made for each flower, and each area, and I tend to see the flower I would make more delicate now, or lighter. It's easier to paint the still life in oils, but there is gratification in working out all the challenges of the watercolor! I'm glad you like it! When the Roses bloom I will take photos of the bushes outside my kitchen window, and you will see why these Bouquets are so abundant! Thank you for your kind words!

      Thank you Lucy! I'm glad you like this one! I want to get it matted and framed and put it up to see and enjoy! Too many of these paintings are hidden away in portfolios! I'm glad I have Shadowness and it's members to share with!

      I love good books, flowers, and a nice drink! I prefer a good Whiskey or a Drambuie to wine though. Or a nice cup of tea in the evening or a Hot Toddy on a cold night! I like a still life to tell a little story! Even if the story is in my imagination! LOL Thank you!
