Mom and daughter watercolors



Two new art works for your viewing pleasure today--the shark picture is by my daughter, Jemma (you can see more of her work on our joint web site, www.salume.org). This piece is now hanging in the Foster City Community Center show. It's not a very new painting, but it sure looks cute in the show.

The leaf picture is the one I showed you recently "in progress"--I finished it this weekend. It's a large one, about 30 inches by 40 inches. After I painted the entire thing, I had to paint over the background areas with a light purple glaze to give it more depth. That took awhile!

I like this leaf one also...very detailed.

Beautiful job on your leaf picture - I thought it was a photo at first glance - and your daughter is talented too!

Thanks! If you look closely at the picture I posted of the leaf picture in progress, you can see the photo I was working from in the upper left corner. My goal is to make it look just like that, only in watercolor.
