Spring's Bouquet by bevmorgan

Watercolour on 140 lb. Arches cold press paper.

Again my thoughts turn to spring with this painting of tree blossoms. It is the result of a challenge posted on flickr by our own Lorus Maver (Bill). I have again used the negative painting technique for most of the leaves and blossoms. Our groundhog predicted an early spring for us this year, so I am just getting ready for its arrival.!


blossoms, negative painting, spring

Painting is such an integral part of my personality and my life. I find much joy and satisfaction in the process, and if the results are pleasing then I am also gratified, but I must admit it is the process that intrigues me and sparks my creative juices.
I paint primarily in watercolour but love to experiment with other media, especially in combination with my watercolour. I would be honoured if you were inclined to take the time to browse through my work.

    The tree flowers of spring are such a treat, and you’ve captured the joyful feeling so well! I see references to “negative painting” from time to time, and I am such a beginner that I have no idea what that is. Can you suggest a website or a book? Thanks!

  • Thanks for the great comment, Celeste. I hope the info I sent you is helpful.

    So soft & lovely. Something like this must take hours!!!

  • Thank you, Marsha. You are right. It did take hours. I did not mean to approach it this way, but as you know, sometimes paintings have a mind and life of their own.
