Day Nine ~~ A Painting A Day

All that Jazz, Oversized Limited Edition print

"All That Jazz"
Original watercolor painting

For all you fellow artists, this was painted with masking fluid on the tulip. After I placed the fluid on the tulips, I was free to paint the background without interfering with the main subject. There is so much energy and movement in this piece. The colors and shapes keep your eyes dancing around the page.

Great title for this one! Love the miskit used as calligraphy (something I've been working on, too).

so much life here - I love your different styles, just when I think I've got you pegged, you come up with something different.

I loved this one when I saw it in your store! I'm so glad you chose to blog about it. And I like knowing how you did it - I'm definitely not an artist, but I'd want to try this if I ever get up the nerve...

I love how intense your colors are! I think too often watercolors get pegges as being soft and pastel. Which they do better than any other paint, but I really love the pure pigmented punch they can deliver too- and you show that off so well!
