More blue and white coming soon


Today I am linking up to the Blue and white bash over at The Pink Pagoda.
I have been painting away at the blue and white watercolors. I have decided to add a new style, one where the details are less important and the mood comes first. I am so enjoying the colors bleeding into one and other and inching ever so slightly towards my love of abstraction.
Since buying the Waterlogue app, I have been obsessed with seeing less.
It was fun for me to paint a few of my Waterlogued images but I have moved on to "unseeing" my own pieces and layering the colors and and letting the background and the object have less defined boundaries.
It has been suggested that I simply remove my glasses and paint. Funny!

Here are a few that Jennifer of The Pink Pagoda will be offering in March.





There will still be more of the first style that was offered and plenty in this new style.
Speaking of that first style, my four year-old daughter actually asked for a hydrangea watercolor for her bedroom. I bought a tube of Opera Pink over the weekend and thought she would be the perfect guinea pig for the new color.





Which style do you prefer? Or do you have another blue and white idea that you would like to see?

Kerry,
I really love this style of painting. I also of course love the subject - Flowers! Keep going, these are so pretty!

These are yummy Kerry and the pieces with Opera Pink look terrific in your daughter's bedroom. Love seeing and reading about your creative process.

Having me pick a favorite style of your painting is like picking a favorite child. Not possible. Is that your daughter's room? It looks so sweet.

I LOVE your work and did not know you had a blog....happy to be following along now! Well done, and like a breath of fresh (and much needed)spring air!

There's no way I could choose. They're both incredible in different ways! I've already got my new Bash invitation up and used one of the new series images. Everything you do is beautiful!!

I Love your abstracts! However, you truly show how versatile you are with these absolutely lovely watercolors they are just wonderful and mix so well with your abstracts too!

Your paintings are beautiful. They make me smile!
I admire your talent. The only way I can paint is with the Waterlogue app. ;-)

Great paintings. I go back and forth on which style I like...it might just depend on my current mood!

Your paintings are so soft and light, I adore the blue-white-pink colour combo!!:)

Both styles are beautiful! Isn't that what Monet's deal was? He was pretty much blind and so what he saw was sort of like Waterlogue?
Love the pair of paintings in your daughter's room! That pink paint on her walls is so pretty - very subtle, a great shade (I think it's hard to get pink walls right - we tried and failed years ago!).

I love both. So much. Sorry--I know that's not constructive at all, but it's the truth :-/
