Farmer´s Market


Farmer´s Market
A sunny autumn day at the local market.


Saving my whites in watercolor.


Adding more colors and defining my objects.


I shared this piece with Daily Paintworks this week.
I am also sharing it with Paint Party Friday and
What have you been up to this week....besides eating
a lot of leftover Halloween candy?

After this was posted to Blogger I see the horrific glare from
my scanner.....yikes! I hope you had your sunglasses on when
viewing...but saving whites in watercolor will blind you sometimes.

Wow, Cynthia. I should visit your blog more often so I can learn how to handle watercolors better. Thanks for the step by step photos. The results are nothing short of amazing. Very beautiful work. Faye

I thought the first image was a photo! I LOVE that soft peachy-orange of your paintings, Cynnie!

Yvonne said...

It looks great! The results from your farmer's market trip is really gorgeous. I do have these at my vegetable garden and now they're in small baskets in my living room, but I think yours are more beautiful! And you can keep them a lot longer!
Also wonderful colours in your painting Cynnie.
Bye, Yvon xxx
