I don't normally post progress pics of my paintings. casue...who cares...
However I thought that it might be interesting to see a before and after of this painting.

this is just the first layer of watercolor. In an effort to make myself loosen up my painting style I am painting this whole thing with a 1" wash brush,

Im calling this one done, The good thing about working on the cold press paper is that its practically impossible to put in alot of detail the paper is just too bumpy. But I like it, very loose suggestive old school style of painting. and its really helping me with light and highlights. basically you HAVE to leave white paper . so heres te final pic of this painting after some ink and a little bit of colored pencil.
Now Im going to start over and do this piece again, I bet it comes out completely different.
size 15" x 22"

Nice one!! That one does have that vintage painting look to it. It's cool to see the progress shots so keep it up!
I will have to get you to do something for our Lounge!

All the best!!

Wonderful Dawn!

I really love your paintings. The last batch you did for the online art show were splendid also!

They really capture the warm soft lines of the tropics, and the colors are spot on.

I love the tikis you include also, they really tie in the specific region.

Keep up the great work!

I hope to own one of your originals some day.

thanks doods, Im feeling good about whats going on with the paints lately. I think I finally have something thats all my own. The interesting part is this is the style of watercolor painting that I started out learning as a kid. I just needed to find my niche of subject matter to make me appriciate it. next one is on my desk right now. progress pics??? I think I will limit the progress pics to just 3 for each piece, first layers of paint , lqst layers of paint, and finished off with the ink details. woo hoo Im on a roll, no Im not Im on a bun..

What? No pictures of the pile of paper? No photos of yer brushes? No shots of yuh shoppin' fer watercolors? No sunsets? No images of what yuh decided not to do? Bah!

And if yuh don't post new pics of yer paintings after every brush stroke WE WON'T BE ABLE TO PRINT THE PICS AND MAKE FLIP BOOKS!!!

Some people are so self absorbed. It just makes me sick.

Awesome new stuff, Dawn. I love the new, more landscapish scenes and the felt is too cool. Your constant evolution makes your thread fun to look at.

Even though I'm not clever and witty when it comes to naming my paintings. this one was automatic I'm calling it "the other side of the island".
its kinda the same at the previous painting. slightly different. not necessarily better or worse than the first

i like the second one better!
the tiki seems happier!

Richer,deeper....
the best part of exploring a scene/subject matter
is working out the bugs
and finding new ways to enhance
what ya got!
YAY DAWNEE!

Y'know what'd be "clever and witty"? If that tiki was wearin' a fez.

But seriously folks...

I dig the unifying sepia wash and green tone of this one. Framed in black it'd be a very strong piece for a guest room foyer.

As it is now it'd be a really cool place mat. Especially with a dot-to-dot of a hula girl, a word search, and a fez on the tiki.
