World Watercolor Month 2017 – Wrap Up, Week 3

I am a little late with my week three wrap up of World Watercolor Month, but here goes:

Continuing to practice flowers from the Fresh Floral class at art-classes.com, I painted some sunflowers in bloom as well as buds.

Dandelion

This one had too many petals, so I made it become a dandelion ūüėĀ

Next were lessons on roses – a whole bouquet of them!

Now to put them all together, the mission was to make a wreath of all the flowers we had learned.

Then I became sidetracked and felt like painting a bird, so I did.

The plan for week 4 is to finish up the Fresh Floral class and then paint whatever else comes to mind.  Thanks for stopping by!

Train, #WorldWatercolorGroup

Yes, two posts in one day!¬† This is a first for me, but I wanted to contribute to Draw A Bird Day as well as participate in the #WorldWatercolorGroup prompt, which is train.¬† I decided to go the fabric route rather than the locomotive route. ¬†Also, I’ve been on a kick with my Derwent Inktense pencils which hopefully qualify as watercolor since water is needed to activate them. Evidently the longer the train on a wedding dress, the more formal the wedding, which would explain why Princess Diana’s wedding dress train was so long.¬† Our local museum had her dress, tiara, wedding accessories, etc. on display last year or so, and I was thrilled to see these items in person.¬† Such beautiful craftsmanship and exquisite attention to detail!

My bride’s dress appears to be a semi-formal length.¬† This is my first time to draw fabric and a person as a subject, as a matter of fact, and although it is not perfect I thought it was fun.¬† Lastly, here is a fun fact – While researching bridal trains, I read on the Internet about a bride who had a train that was almost 2-miles long, and she went up in a hot air balloon with the ridiculous train flowing behind her.¬† If it’s on the internet it must be true, right?
