Fearless Friday, “Simple Things” Watercolor


Simple things bring much happiness,

Fresh flowers can change the whole mood of a space

Instantly everything seems fresher &  brighter





They don’t have to be fancy, in fact, I like a casual vase with just a few stems, like in this magazine photo





A few pink petals help establish the composition










Adding blues





Stems and leaves





More details and shadows




A white paint pen or a white gel pen can add a few bright highlights to the glass




I do watercolor paintings on an Arches Watercolor block pad, 140 lb, Cold Pressed, 9″X12″ paper

A block pad keeps your paper flat, no ripples…good paper is pricey, but quality makes a big difference

Plus it’s so heavy I often paint on both sides!





“Simple Things”  9″ x 12″ watercolor


Enjoy the simple things!

Happy creating and Be Fearless!

    Jenna your watercolor artwork is gorgeous! You are very talented, as watercolors aren’t easy to work as I understand !
    Continue your wonderful job.


  10. I think I need to do a tutorial painting from this — I have the toughest time with water and these are the best hints I’ve seen! Thank you! (And it’s lovely, by the way!)
