Sunday Watercolors; Learning from Bill Vrscak



Hi!
It is Sunday and I am here  to share a new watercolor! Being a mom to a 6-year-old and working full-time as a teacher I can't always afford to wait for inspiration to paint to come - I have to make use of the time when I'm given some (-: - like when Mikael takes Ted skating on a Sunday afternoon for example. But what if I don't have any inspiration at all -this is what I do - I find a painting - usually one I've saved on Pinterest because I liked it- and try to copy it. I try to figure out what the artist has done to create the look and feeling in the painting that I like. This time I worked from a painting by Bill Vrscak.



If you want to see more of my watercolors you can either click the "My Watercolors" button in the top list or in my Watercolors file on Pinterest; http://www.pinterest.com/peppermint42/watercolors - the paintings there are not only by me, though I wish because I've collected some favorites!

Have a great Sunday, hugs, Karin

This is so pretty! I love how there's great detail, but also some fading/blending.
