Vintage Wash Stand

Vintage Wash Stand
Painted sage green
I love antique wash stands, painted or not painted
They seem so sturdy and unassuming
I have two of them in my living room, and am always
on the lookout for another

White Roses and Daisies

White Roses and Daisies
Painted in watercolor, of course.
I used diluted blues and greens for the flowers,
since I do not use white paint.
The centers were painted with WN Transparent Yellow
and WN Quin Gold.
Available in my Etsy shop.

Geraniums in the Window, French Blue Shutters

Geraniums in the Window

Beside the colorful blue shutters that you see
in so many French windows.
The red is a lovely color by Grumbacher
called "Geranium".

Old Farmhouse and Red Barn

Old Farmhouse and Red Barn
Painted in watercolor, of course.
For my painter friends, the red barn is painted
in my favorite sienna color, Schmincke Transparent Brown,
a wonderfully transparent rich color.
Some of my favorite watercolor tubes are Schmincke.
It's an old German watercolor company,
more popular in England and Europe, but available
in the States, as well.

Blue Chair, Brown Dresser, A Cozy Interior

This painting was for Day #30
in the "30 Paintings in 30 Days" Challenge
This was the final painting of the challenge.
It was a very interesting experience.  I missed a few days
here and there, and I didn't post every painting
here in my blog.  It was a good learning experience.
Leslie Saeta is planning another 30/30 challenge in January,
for any artists who would like to participate.
