Home Sweet Home No. 7 Final

Posted by Jan Howlett on Tuesday, December 18, 2012, In : Home Sweet Home 

Hi All Artists Hearts,

This is an extra post script to finalize the "Home Sweet Home" Watercolor series.  Somehow I lost the photo showing this painting in it's oval frame as it was presented to my dear Mom on her 90th Birthday this past May.  I realized after I posted the last segment that I had hit the publish button before I had actually completed the write up and located this composite photo of the finished piece.  So let's try again.

This was a sweet and delightful little painting that gav...

Home Sweet Home No. 6

Watercolor by Jan Howlett titled Home Sweet Home Hi All Artists Hearts,
We're back temporarily for this promised Christmas post of "Home Sweet Home". Thanks for your patience.  I almost managed to post this near the expected date.  My recovery from my surgery is slow and still quite painful, but I am at least well enough to start back to painting again.  How glad I am for the wonderful diversion of painting.  I sure do miss it when I can't be at the easel. 

Home Sweet Home is finally completed in this series and many of the loose ends and ...

Home Sweet Home No. 5

Posted by Jan Howlett on Sunday, October 28, 2012, In : Home Sweet Home 
Hi All Artists Hearts,
We can't believe it is November or that a few flurries and light frost have visited us a few times already.  But we are cozy inside and enjoying the ability to fire up our paint brushes and continue our series. 

Home Sweet Home Stage 5 Watercolor by Jan HowlettWe have many more washes applied now and I'm delighted with the blend of colors that are bringing so much more life to this vignette.  The most noticeable progress is seen in the early stages of my filling in the background summer sky at the top of the painting a...

Finchs Garden Stage 3 Watercolor by Jan Howlett
 Hi All Artists Hearts,
Things have progressed to where some color washes have now been introduced on the roses, leaves and 1 butterfly.

I always love it when I can start this part of the process.  Mixing  color is such fun and the anticipation of bringing a one dimensional outline sketch into the start of a two or 3 dimensional presentation that a viewer can identify with is such a joyous and satisfying challenge.

I must admit when I first began painting way back in the early 1980's I would av...

Finchs Garden Stage 2 Watercolor by Jan Howlett
Hi All Artists Hearts,

It has been longer than expected, but finally Stage 2 is now live.  This photo is a little dark, but shows the outline a little better than if I had brightened it more.  I have used 2 yellows to lay in the foundation underlays that will eventually influence the various different color washes that I will apply.  One is a warm yellow and the other a cool yellow, depending on the direction of the sun and of course whether the area is exposed to the sky.

The sketch itself i...

Home Sweet Home No. 2

Posted by Jan Howlett on Tuesday, July 17, 2012, In : Home Sweet Home 
Hello All Artist Hearts!
We arrived back from a restful time away for which we praise the Lord. It was truly needed.  I enjoyed painting, reading and keeping my hubby Ross company as he did a little fishing as usual while enjoying great conversations around our favorite topics.  Ross managed to catch a number of little fish and then the biggest fish he has ever caught was almost landed but broke his fishing line at the last moment...all caught on video!  So it really is our "fish story" of the...

Posted by Jan Howlett on Tuesday, May 22, 2012, In : Home Sweet Home 
Hi All Artists Hearts,
While we wait for final approval to arrive from the original photographer who granted permission to use his work for the finished Watercolor, "The Last Rose of Summer"  let's start a new series called "Home Sweet Home-Finch's Garden.   Let me introduce you to some of the various components that will make up this sweet little composition.  The first photo is a manipulated compilation of several different photographs for the possible composition, including the Adonis blue ...
