My voice

I'm trying to find my own voice in this medium, water colors are new to me. Sure I painted with water colors before, but I never got to where I wanted to be, just wasn't crazy about the result, until now. I love the transparent quality of the colors when they mix with each other. After watching a few videos on Youtube I tried to paint myself. My graphic esthetics took over and I added pens and colored pencils. I wonder where it will take me and how I'll make it my own. Other than getting the proper paper and brushes, I'm planning to take a class at Otis, my favorite art school in the area. This is my first attempt to find myself in water colors (It's probably not a good idea to post my first attempts after the amazing art of Kiana Mosley, I guess we all have to start somewhere).

Wrapping paper

I got inspired from my last post while driving over a speed bump and looking at the triangles on top of it. The colors are from my post about nature's inspiration. I merged all three and came up with a series of four very colorful wrapping paper. Enjoy.

Nature color and shape

Beautiful colors of grass growing in my neighborhood. I wanted to share the beauty of nature and get inspired from the graphic lines and the colors, they all work so well together.
