Purple Haze


This is a watercolour painting I did last night experimenting with just letting watercolour paint do what it wants to do. Instead of trying to structure it. It's a long time since I purely just used watercolour, I love mized media and using pens in my illustration work but I think I'm going to try do more quick studies just using one media to quickly document what it is I'm seeing or experiencing. I like how it's just a general hint at what the flowers look like, by using the colour to express the form. I saw this really striking pretty flower in the garden which is the most gorgeous shades of purple, with pink and hints of blue, long spikey type petals which makes it look kind of like a pretty jelly fish and as the sun was setting it just really felt like those summer evenings that you remember when you were little. #sentimental! I can imagine if I worked on these flowers studies more to include a bit more detail, they would make perfect cards or paper to give to my Grandma, they're the typical kind of thing that she would like. Even though dandelions may be considered a weed, I still love them they're quaint essential spring time bloom and I love making wishes on the dead ones!

I'm really looking forward til tomorrow, the weathers meant to still be nice (fingers crossed) and instead of having a roast were going to BBQ it up! What have you got planned for easter?


edit: I meant dandelions not daffodils haha my bad!
