Blueberries and Cherries

I love summer when the berries and cherries are ripe for picking!

We had such a wet Spring that I had the best crop of blueberries in my yard!  Of course I had to paint them with my new set of Rembrandt watercolor paints! 🙂

I made a light pencil sketch first and then painted wet into wet.  I added sketchy details with a micron black pen after the watercolor had dried.  It is more abstract than realistic but I like it.

Pie cherries were ripe at the lake last weekend in the neighbor’s yard – these are sour cherries – not good for eating off the tree but delish for pies, that is if the Robins don’t eat them first!

I picked a few to paint in my art journal:

I love those bright reds, don’t you?!

It was super fun to experiment in different painting styles.

Do you have a favorite summer fruit?  I hope you share it with me!

Happy Summer!  Cheers! 🙂

Reds And Blues

I thought you might enjoy seeing some of my watercolor paintings I did recently in my art journal.

My cherry tomatoes are ripe for picking – they are my “red” subject:

They taste as sweet as candy!  🙂

And here are my “blue” subjects – blueberries and bellflowers:

I started with a pencil sketch first before painting in watercolor:

I enjoyed painting these subjects outside this last weekend in the cooler weather.

Wishing you a happy day filled with a rainbow of color!  🙂
