A Woman Who Serves the Lord…~Watercolor Painting

Standard

A woman who fears the Lord

I made this card for my little sis’s birthday. It was inspired by the verse, Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised. Pro 31:30. 

I enjoyed making this card for her. I would like to do a larger version that is more detailed sometime. 🙂

Night Hawk-Watercolor Painting

Night Hawks are very fascinating birds. I had the pleasure of seeing one sitting down in the needles amidst the pine trees one day. He was very well camouflaged in the midst of  the dead pine  needles.Their eyes are so black that they look as if they’re nothing more than black holes. I had always seen these birds flying at night, but that had been  the first time I had actually seen one up close. I love the whooshing sound they make while diving, and their little chirping noise grows on you. If you are a bird watcher, I would suggest you study this one.

Green Hummingbird-Watercolor Painting

This painting may seem simple enough, but I faced some challenging moments in it’s development. Watercolor is one of my favorite media’s to use. You can work with it and spread it in most of the areas you want before it drys. But if you don’t make sure it drys before applying another layer, it mixes in too much. As I paint I’m learning more through my mistakes. 😉

I’m a great color fan, and love most of the colors I put into this painting. The final touch was suggested to me by my Dad, who told me to add yellow to the background which tied in all the yellow that I had put into the flower and bird. He told me that the color of the background looked too cool and that the yellow would warm the colors up. And you know what? He was right! My Dad sure knows his stuff!
