Watercolor Weekend July 21, 2018

Hello Watercolor Friends,

Did you know, the Art Impressions blog features the Watercolor Weekend Roundup every first and third Saturday of each month?  Be sure to sign up and you will get the notice in your inbox.

I always dream of being near a sandy beach and the ocean during the summer time.  I wonder if others feel that way, too? So I made a scene by an ocean using a cabin from the 4962 - WC Rustic Cabins Set. I just sort of penciled in the rocky wall, trail and shore line, then watercolored them using my palette. I used the Molotow 2.0mm masking liquid to leave some white space where my flowers would be.  After it dried, I used the foliage from 5009 - WC Mini Flower Set to add the leaves, wiped off the masking liquid, then painted in the little flowers.  I used part of the fence from the 5011 - WC Truck Mini Set. I used the kite from the 4606 - Cottage by the Beach Set to add that whimsical touch it needed.
