A couple of watercolors from the past few weeks / by Bethann Wilson

I have been very busy painting in the new year.  I've been trying to balance commission work with fun things for ME that may or may not lead to other works.  I have been enjoying using watercolors.  I got back into them while we were on our trip to The Enchantments this past summer.  I will post more on that at a later date-- there is a lot to write about.

This was a little painting I did of friends of our that got married earlier this month.  I really love doing portraits!

This was a painting I did while sitting at the gallery a couple of weeks ago.  I really want to practice more with more vibrant colors and was looking for inspiration in a fashion magazine.  I believe it was January's issue of Marie Claire.  I came across a stunning piece by Zachery Michael that really embodied everything that has been swimming around in my head recently.
