Week 21 – A Year of Flowers 2015 – Custom Watercolor

A Year of Flowers 2015 – Week 21 at Emily Lupita Studio

This week I’ve been working on an original watercolor to match my custom illustration design I made during Week 16. The two mediums are so different, and I do love them both. This is the Irodori Japanese watercolor version – you can see how the hues in the color really stand out.

Even though this event takes place in December I couldn’t resist adding some pink flowers in the background.

A Year of Flowers 2015 – Week 20 at Emily Lupita Studio

The Big Chicken is a famous local landmark here in Marietta, Georgia. This week I drew my version of this charming giant chicken-shaped building surrounded by blooming Spring flowers.

The original watercolor & ink painting is now hanging in the Marietta Square Artist’s Attic up on the Historic Marietta Square. Art Walks are the first Friday of every month all summer long and a great chance to stop by and see the famous chicken in person.

This newest painting is “Lupita with Yellow Roses in Her Hair” and I love how sweet and happy she looks. The beautiful red roses sparkle, but it is her eyes that really shine.

Week 14 – A Year of Flowers 2015 – “Lupita with Daisies in Her Hair”

A Year of Flowers 2015 – Week 14 at Emily Lupita Studio

This is Week 14 of my A Year of Flowers art project. This week I made a sister for my Week 13 Lupita.

I just keep looking at these two lovely ladies. Wow, they are something really new and exciting for me as an artist.

This newest painting is “Lupita with Daisies in Her Hair” and I love the expression on her face. Is she thinking of a long, faraway love? Is she about to laugh? Or cry? I don’t know…it’s a mystery and that’s what I like.

Week 11 – A Year of Flowers 2015 – “Modern Trees”

A Year of Flowers 2015 – Week 11 at Emily Lupita Studio

I feel like this is a good time to take a look at where I’ve traveled so far this year with my A Year of Flowers art project. These are the first 10 paintings I’ve made during the first 10 weeks of 2015.

My Week 11 painting features flowering trees in a cool, crisp modern style. Something different!

I used Sakura ink & antique Irodori Japanese watercolors to paint the flowering trees, then added a background of handmade Japanese paper to create this art print.

I’m having so much fun painting flowers in vases. This is my second one and I’m really enjoying the color combinations – how the colors play between the flowers and the vase.

I used Sakura ink & antique Irodori Japanese watercolors to paint the the flowers (above), then added a background of handmade Japanese paper (below) to create this art print. I like how the background gives another level to the color combos and creates the illusion of the vase sitting on a table.
