#25 & #26 Paris - Sheryl Hawkins




These watercolors are painted from reference photos I took on a trip to Paris a few years ago.  Sometimes, I like to go back through photos I have had for a while and take a fresh look at them.  I have been painting with oils for the last few weeks and they are, for the most part, dark still life paintings.  I love to do them, but it is also nice to get back to the light feel of watercolors!  These were fun to paint and I was happy to get into all the colors.

These sketches look so fresh and fun, and yes the treats look might tasty. I'm usually overwhelmed when I look at a display of multiple items - but it is interesting to see how you have composed these two paintings. I get a real sense of what you saw. Delightful.
