Bright just makes me happy


I don't know if any of you follow Kelly Nina Perkins but everytime I see a new post on my blog roll her colors always catch my eye. I love her video Stitch Imagery and I decided to pull out one of my sketches from a previous drawing class and paint it. I used Dr. Ph. Martin's transparent concentrated watercolors which I have has for about 25 years--really, I have!  I love them so much I would like to get a few other colors. I love painting these paintings because all you really have to think about is what colors to use because watercolor techniques are not necessary. But what colors to use--that can be daunting sometimes actually. Know what I mean!!??
Oh, and I sewed around the images.
