Nice PNG costume Dawn. Reminds me of the one I made years ago that was like that with a bug smashed on the bottom of a shoe

HA HA HA! Very neat costume Sophisti-tiki! I have to say I normally am not a big fan of watercolors, but yours are so clean and well done I really like them. That A-frame one is excellent. One of these days when I can get the scratch together I want to get one of your incredible shirt designs.

these 2 are finished




the easel is full of finished pieces ready for framing



got 3 different pallets of watercolors going, different brands of paint in each one, Dr, Martins, Dan Smith extra fine, and a Windsor Newton/Grumbacher combo



and here's some of whats in progress






Now, a little about watercolors, underestimated and under appreciated in general
Oils and acrylics are very forgiving, you can work and rework a piece until its perfected.
With watercolors you only get ONE shot to get it right, its very easy to over work a piece, there are no adding highlights, they need to be left like negative space using the whiteness of the paper. not as easy as you think it might be. I like the combination of a tight graphic sensibility and the looseness of watercolor, the play between defining the details and having them suggested with a brushstroke or color.
Not as easy as you think it is.

Oh, I know watercolors are not easy I have tried my hand before that is why I admire good work in it when I find it. Trouble is there are few people that really know how to work that particular medium to its best. I count you as a brave soul that can do watercolors without a safety net; any time I do actually do watercolors I feel I have to do it on pen & inks I have done; that is my safety net. I have tried without pen and ink and generally it winds up a disaster. I am not fond of watercolor paper with all its bumpy unevenness and sponge like quality so I tend to use bristol board. Watercolor takes more patience than I usually have because you have to keep doing layers on top of layers and if you make a mistake of too much it is pretty hard to correct (you can soak a little up with salt and pray that is about it).

I admire your work you seem to have found just the right middle ground in watercolor where it is utilizing the translucent painterly qualities with a sort of clean graphic design sense.
