This is a new painting of bougainvillea and Poppies in a pickle jar. I painted it in the Spring. Colorful spring flowers and glass is something I can’t resist painting. This painting is made with think paint and loose brush strokes.

This is the Plaza del Conde de Barajas la Plaza de los Pintores. There are 39 artists who show their work every Sunday from 10-2. I have a little stand there too. As of October I have a permanent stand where I show my art too. I’m really happy about it.

Oil paintings, Prints and Watercolors
I’m really happy to have a little space to show my art whether it be watercolor, print or oil paintings.
I’m going to show some watercolors this Sunday. This watercolor is part of a series called My Favorite Bottles.

I like to start a watercolor with a light grid to keep my parallel lines parallel. I start with a pencil sketch and then go on to pen and ink.

I tape down all of my watercolors to get the white edge of the paper. Don’t think you need anything expensive. I use carpenter’s tape, but it’s only there for a couple of hours. I wouldn’t leave it there for more than a day.

This is the white edge I’m talking about. When the tape is taken off, you have a white border.
