Texas Blues (30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge: Day 14)

Texas Blues, Watercolor on Ampersand Aquabord, 5"h x 5"w, 2012 #16

Bid at My DPW Auction (Starting Bid $45)

Here's "Texas Blues", finally finished! Turns out... Painting on Aquabord is really a very time-consuming process, and this little piece has taken much longer than what I initially expected to finish! But, here it is, as promised... And I have a couple more pieces in the pipes for the next couple of days, so stay tuned!

  1. Oh, how do you manage to create these gorgeous rich dark backgrounds so smooth and crisp!? And besides, on Aquaboard! I'd be happy to achieve this on paper... It's gorgeous, the bells look like they are glowing.

  2. Oh...my...stars! This is absolutely gorgeous! Stunningly beautiful. Such rich, vivid, glorious purples and blues and tones and shades. I agree with you, Blaga - the bells inside really do look luminiscent. I can nearly feel the softness of the delicate petals. I think I could look at this one for hours on end, smiling and admiring all the while.

    Thanks for sharing this, Arena. It truly is beautiful. - June

  3. Beautifully done! The colors are gorgeous! Very dramatic and striking painting.
