I was trying for a delicate touch with these rather prolific garden flowers. Given half a chance Feverfew will take over a flower bed. Since they are pretty and make an excellent cut flower it’s not such a bad thing if you let them take over.

“Red White and Blue ” #WorldWatercolorMonth 

July 4th. A busy work day for me after our Canadian 150th celebrations and art show. This one isn’t really red white and blue but close enough. Original art by Susan Feniak. Koi Watercolors on Opus Finest paper 

“Dandelions” #WorldWatercolorGroup 

June 15th Dandelions. I will apologize for not blogging, responding or liking or commenting on some days during boating season. My data can’t  sustain the action! Hope you are having a wonderful week.  Original art by Susan Feniak. QOR water color on Strathmore Paper.

QOR water color #worldwatercolorgroup 

It’s official I am going to love my new QOR water colors. Made by Golden. I bought 6 basic colors.  The cadmium Yellow is on back order.  Because there was an awesome sale on at Opus, I also received 3 free tubes.  You can see the results in my first quick painting using only the magenta, Chinese white, oxide green and nickel azo yellow. I will be sharing more…. Original art by Susan Feniak.  QOR water color on Canson Aquarelle paper. I am saving the new hot press Arches for special paintings. #worldwatercolorgroup 

“Flowery ” #worldwatercolorgroup 

May 2nd and the prompt led me to Lily of the Valley. Simply because it blooms in May, I enjoy it’s scent and the leaves are textural. Original art by Susan Feniak.  Holbein Artists water colors on Strathmore cold press paper. “4×6”. #WorldWatercolorGroup 

Freckled Poinsettia

original art by Susan Feniak  water colour pencil, elegant writer, and water colours on paper.  A quick sketch inspired by a very different poinsettia plant given to me by a friend.  Could not resist the temptation to put it on paper.  Cheers, Susan
