Welcome to Barb's Daily Creations! I have lofty ambitions - I want to post a new drawing or painting every day. The purpose of this, of course is to stay creative and on task artistically even when I may not feel the muses calling, prodding and pushing. I hope that you enjoy my humble efforts, because, ultimately, that is the purpose of creating art - to enrich lives - mine and yours. Thanks for visiting!
Write it on your heart that every day is the best day of the year.

I have been experimenting with a new technique in painting foliage which involves splattering and splashing watercolor on the paper with a brush - letting the spatters fall where they may and splattering colors into colors. For foliage they suggest 3 pools of paint - light yellow, quinacridone gold and Pthalo blue. For the above painting I also added quinacridone rose violet, and then detailed the painting with a thin line Sharpie marker.
The painting below is the first I did using just the 3 suggested colors. The result is a very loose, impressionistic painting, very unlike my style, but it works in it's own way.
