red yellow tulip

Watercolor, 30x40 cm
I finished working on this tulip two days ago. I took a lot of photos of the tulips we bought three weeks ago. And from those photos, I got my inspiration for this painting. I am not satisfied with the background but I think I should leave it just like that. I like more the colors of the original painting than this digital photo. Have a nice weekend to all.

rose sketches

We bought two bunches of roses, in yellow and orange colors, last Valentine's day. These flowers had inspired me to do a number of rose sketches, two of which I showed below. The first one was made using acrylic and the second one using graphite pencil and pen.

watercolor brush

Watercolor and pen, 18x24 cm
This morning I thought to do a sketch of one of my watercolor brushes. I checked out my brushes from Da Vinci and Van Gogh brands and then was inspired by the form of the above brush. This is made by Royal Talens from their Van Gogh collections. I used pen for the sketch and then watercolors.

Watercolor,  18x24 cm
I based this simple sketch from the image I saw from AH supermarket monthly magazine which I was browsing while having breakfast this morning. Because I felt I wanted to sketch something, I took my graphite pencil and pen to do this cup and saucer sketch. Brushing it with some colors, I got this result.
