Hand painted grassesPosted: June 30, 2020 Filed under: Finetec paints, Hand painted | Tags: Fabriano Watercolour Paper, Finetec artist mica watercolour paint, Hand painted 8 Comments
I painted a simple scene recently featuring mainly grasses along with some berries and golden flowers. Unlike some of my other paintings where I have tried to make them look like a particular flower or vegetable, these plants are whimsical doodles.
I was inspired by CeeCee of Creations CeeCee; she does beautiful paintings in lovely natural colour palettes and often includes some gold or silver. I painted on cold pressed watercolour paper with Sennelier watercolours plus some gold from a Finetec pearlescent set.
As you can probably tell I began with the green leafy grasses but painted with the panel upside down. My intention was a weeping willow type of look but when I turned it around I decided to continue painting plants reaching for the sky instead. I finished it off with some fine gold splatter.
Your creations are always inspiring. I can almost here a breeze blowing through the tall grasses. Thank you for sharing a tranquil and refreshing moment captured with your brush and paint.
Thank you, what a lovely response; I’m glad you find it tranquil. I am definitely getting to know my paints better as I tackle my little watercolours.
Absolutely one of your best! I love this painting. It brings me peace. I’m going to get lit paper and paint and give it a try. Thank you.
Thank you so much Bev, I am so pleased you are inspired to give it a try.
Beautiful wildflowers, Heather!
Beautiful Heather. And love how you added some blue in the grasses.
Beautiful! I love the texture of grasses and the way they move in the breeze!
I should get you to paint something from my garden : )
Beautiful, it makes me think of a photo I took of my oldest grandson about 16 years ago when he was 4 and we were hiking around our favorite mountain lake. I had him sit in the wild grasses ane yellow flowers with just his shoulders & head peeking above the grasses with the lake in the background!
