Friends, I’ve been traveling in France, hence my silence here on the blog, but I did want to share with you my Experiments in Blue from the past two weeks!

This one below was drawn on a train from Paris to Nice, as we meandered (rather speedily) through the French countryside of Provence. It is painted entirely in one paint color, too.

Hope everyone is having a great week so far.

Experiments in Blue // Week 25

06/20/16

week26

Today is my last day in London — and I know I promised some travel photos a week ago and haven’t delivered. You know when you travel and you think you will have loads of down time and then you don’t? Well, that’s what happened to me! But I hope to share some later this week! It’s been a wonderful week.

For now I share with you this week’s Experiment in Blue, which I painted today in my little apartment here with my travel watercolor set, and it’s dedicated to the 49 victims of the Orlando massacre — who have been weighing heavily on my heart for the past nine days.

Tomorrow I head back home to Portland. I’ll see you back there in a couple of days!

This week’s Experiment in Blue is an ode to summer — summer fruit, flowers and bright cheery colors. I’m also headed to France in July so I added a little French “good day” as well.

Happy summer, all!

Experiments in Blue // Week 22

Yesterday I was inspired to paint a floral motif for this week’s Experiment in Blue. I draw flowers a lot but I don’t often paint them, and so this was a true experiment. I really had fun doing it, and I plan to keep working on my watercolor floral motifs! This piece was made mostly with watercolor paints and a touch of gouache.

I hope everyone in the U.S. has a nice and relaxing Memorial Day holiday. The weather here in Portland should be lovely! My best to everyone.

Tomorrow I’m back with a new interview with someone I admire. Stay tuned for that!
