Family Watercolor Fest–Works in Progress

Since she liked the Poppies my daughter painted a few weeks ago, I chose this scaled-down version of the same painting from Fiona Peart’s “Vibrant Flowers in Watercolor” tutorial for my sister. She really rocked it.

My niece, Karen, chose a Tulip tutorial from Michael Lakin’s book, “Botanical Flowers in Watercolor.” My mother chose to paint an Agapanthus from the same book.

My daughter painted these Daffodils using a tutorial from the book, “Watercolor Flowers” by Wendy Tait as a guide. The addition of blue on the white petals really made this painting come alive.

And I’m working on this lesson featuring Tulips, Posies, and Hellebores from the book, “Tulips in Watercolor” by Fiona Peart. I’ll be posting photos of the completed paintings next.

    Looks like everyone had a great time! And they all turned out so well. Wish I could have been there.

    Nice photos of nice family artwork. Postings such as this are good to see, rare to have a family sit and do artwork. Only my grand daughters will do that with me, guess I too should post such. Thanks

      The family painting sessions started with just me and my daughter but the group gets larger every time I host one. We always have a good time and everyone is proud of their finished paintings.

          Thanks! We like to listen to classical music while we paint. And my sister usually brings something good to eat. She’s an excellent baker.
