Mt. Hood, Inspired by Lavender Fields

Mt. Hood Lavender
Inspired by the fields of lavender in the Hood River Valley during my painting trip, Mt. Hood Lavender is a miniature watercolor painting.   It will be in the February small works show at the Red Chair Gallery. The requirements for the miniature paintings for this particular show were that the size was to be no larger than 10" x 12" framed.   Painting small paintings like this one is one of my favorite things to do.  Do you like to paint large or small or both?

Gorgeous colors, Jacqueline! These days I mostly paint small and in a journal. On the radar for change though. I miss bigger works.

Thanks Laure, you are always so kind. It is fun to go between small and large but hard sometimes.

I agree with Laure, gorgeous color. I'm usually in between with paintings but plan on doing some very small paintings in the near future.

Oh, these colors work for me! Gorgeous small and mighty work.

I have been working small - mostly in journals - for the past year ... but am dreaming of medium!

Small and mighty - I like that!

Beautiful, Jacqueline!

After today's class I am wondering: wet on wet in places? any sponges used? glazing, texture, etc? It looks like a paint brush was used, but you know how much more I have to learn!! :) Thank you for being a patient and very helpful and informative teacher!

Beautiful painting, Jacqueline! You can paint such a variety of styles. I love your use of color!

After today's class I am wondering: any sponges used? wet on wet? washes? glazing, texture techniques? It looks to me like a paint brush was used, but you know how much more I have to learn!!! :)

Thank you for being such a patient, encouraging, and fun instructor.

Looking forward to next class!

Pj you are FABULOUS! I don't think I used a sponge but negative shapes, wet-on wet, lots of glazing and brush strokes. And white Gouache!
