Wonderful Watercolours

Today me and my mum have been using my watercolour paints and paper to create some pretty images from around the garden (and one pottery museum). We first used fine-liners to draw out the outline and we both liked the effect that they made on the pictures.
  Here is the only picture that isn't a garden themed one. Mum was inspired by pottery museums to make this industrial looking picture with lots of stone and brick work. I love the different shades she has used so that it doesn't all blend together as one brown picture.  Also she has gone into so much detail there is even a cobbled street and if you look very closely there is even a little bird on one of the chimneys.

The next picture is also my mums. I think it looks a lot like a flowery spring meadow but it's supposed to be a lovely flowerbed in a garden. It has lavender, rose and even more flowers in it! I love the bright grass green in the background! Also, the flowers colours work really well together!
Now lets start to look at my watercolour paintings. The first one I'll show you is my least favourite. It is a picture of a garden with a vegetable patch and a cat in it! I made it so you could see the vegetables and roots under the ground.
My last image is also drawn by me it is my favourite of my own drawings. It is a wooden birdhouse that is our garden. It has been standing outside for years so now it is peeling and has a bit of mould on it. I tried to capture the worn look of it in my painting.

I really hope you liked our pieces of art. If you haven't already tried using watercolours then you really should! My mum hadn't tried them before today but she really enjoyed creating the art. Have a go!
