Hobbit Wilderland by linmarie

watercolor/ pen/ink
This painting comes from my desire to learn watercolors and what I can create with them.
It has come to this.
My technique of free flowing paints, textured with my crinkled trash bag technique.
Wait until dry and then draw in what I see with pen and ink.. and decided not too take the ink tracing the whole way up the painting to create some fading affect..
I do not believe I will ever master watercolors like so many of my friends I have admired and watched here on RB.
But I will let you all know this is my twist of how too use the paints. I just can not seem to wrap my mind on controlling the paint to create flowers, and people, and buildings etc.
So I am in awe of my fellow watercolor artists such as:♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

I am a self taught artist and have drawn and painted since I could hold crayons or a pencil in my hands..
My brain is an attic filled with treasures yet to be explored or recreated.. I am a Veteran,a wife, a mom, a grandmother, a sister, a daughter and a teacher!!! My pallet is full of life, color and energy.. I hope you will see and feel that in all of my artwork.

    Thank you dear Linmarie for mentioning me amongst ‘watercolorists’ you admire…I am so honored! And I am so glad you didn’t say everything with your line work…leaving spaces for the viewer to fill in helps them become apart of the work…

  • thats a wonderful outlook on that Ellen, thank you, Was my feeling exactly, have looked at this for over a week now, and decided not too add anymore lines, too leave something for the imagination, you rock,, thanks for understanding and supporting me, and you are welcome for listing you as inspiration, because you are,, heart♥♥♥and hugs linmarie
