Watercolor Weekend:  Beauty is all around you

Watercolor Weekend:  Beauty is all around you

Welcome to this week’s Art Impressions watercolor weekend.  In the wake of all the tragedies happening around our country I wanted to create a scene that felt peaceful.  I hope it helps to give you some peace as well.  I wish that everyone could spread a little kindness, it goes such a long way.  I thought I would use the Beauty is all around you sentiment for this project.  It is so true and it’s a little reminder to be thankful for every day and enjoy your “Happy Place”.

Onto the details of my project.

First, I started by stamping the tree trunks from the New Fir Trees Set with Sepia.  I then added the Foliage from the branches in the Fir Trees Set with Pine Green.  I softened them Fir’s by adding water with my brush.

I added the tiny grass from the Foliage Set to the bottoms of the trees and used my palette to add some additional green to the ground.  I used the Teeny Tiny Flowers from the Flower Set with African Violet to add a touch of color.

Using my palette, I added some mountains in the background using Olive Green, Pine Green and Sepia.  I then added Salvia, Manganese and Blue to create the look of water.  I also used the same colors to create clouds in the sky.  Once it was dry I stamped the bench from the New Benches Set using Mocha.

I added the “Beauty is all around you” from the WC Sentiments set using Black Versamark Ink.  The panel is 3.75×5 which is adhered to a 4×5.25 panel of Dark Chocolate cardstock from Gina K Designs.  I placed the entire panel on an Asparagus card base from Gina K Designs.
