Shades of Morning and Scales - Two Works in Progress

These are the other two pieces I started in the watercolour on canvas workshop at the Kawartha Artists' Gallery and Studio with Valerie Kent.

For the first one I used various mixes of French ultramarine blue, Antwerp blue, permanent rose and alizarin crimson.

I have to go back over this painting with darker colour to make it stand out as a background sky.

The second painting was inspired by a photograph of scales from different butterfly wings.

Shades of Morning

As with the first piece I will have to go back into the painting with darker more vibrant colour.

I will keep this painting as an abstract as the shapes seem to work well and create movement.


I will post each of these paintings at a later date as more work on them is completed.

Thank you for looking at my artwork.
