The Last Rose of Summer No. 8

Posted by Jan Howlett on Monday, May 14, 2012, In : The Last Rose of Summer 
Hi All Artists Hearts, Promised UPDATE:  Final painting released today!  I am very excited to be able to show the final photo for "The Last Rose of Summer."

What a wonderful endorsement.  Tony was also the first to post my painting on his own Face Book page... you may need to scroll d...

The Last Rose of Summer No. 7

Posted by Jan Howlett on Tuesday, March 20, 2012, In : The Last Rose of Summer 

Hello All Artist Hearts,
This post is long overdue and I apologize, but sometimes life spins in a totally different direction and the best of plans are thwarted and must be re-scheduled.  That has included my time at the easel.

However, I am almost ready to start painting in a butterfly known as Paula's Clear-Wing Butterfly (also called the Glass-wing Butterfly) from the Ithomiidae Family in the order of Lepidoptera.

So, I thought you might find some of my study notes interesting and help ...

The Last Rose of Summer No. 5

Posted by Jan Howlett on Friday, December 2, 2011, In : The Last Rose of Summer 
Hello All Artist Hearts,
It's finally time for the next installment of The Last Rose of Summer.  What we are looking at today is the effect and visual impact that is created with the addition of the newest layers of purple pigment.  Although only a few extra petals and leaves have been worked on, I can see a strong improvement in the forms and shadows, yet without dulling or destroying the light radiating through the petals.  That is certainly what we are striving to achieve at this stage of t...

The Last Rose of Summer No. 4

Posted by Jan Howlett on Tuesday, November 8, 2011, In : The Last Rose of Summer 
Watercolor The Last Rose of Summer by Jan Howlett-Stage 3 Hi All Artist Hearts,
Today and for the next few posts we will concentrate on the additions of the first new pigmented washes on the rose petals.  And because we were careful to lay in the yellow under washes you will be able to clearly see in this close-up the yellows glowing through the petals

TIP:(If you press your Control key with your + key you will be able to enlarge the close-up and see the glow - to return your window to normal size just click the Control key plus your minus [-] key)

The Last Rose of Summer No. 3

Posted by Jan Howlett on Monday, October 3, 2011, In : The Last Rose of Summer 
Watercolor by Jan Howlett-'Last Rose of Summer' Stage 2Hi All Artists Hearts,
Finally we have the first washes and veils of painted color ready for this post using warm and cool yellows as our base under-painting map.  I used Arulean Yellow for my cool color and Translucent Orange for my warm yellow.

This prepares the leaves for when I begin to paint in the various values of green pigment needed to describe the surfaces of the rose leaves whether in sunlight or shadow.  Because you take the time to lay in this yellow map the yellows will glow beaut...

Pencil Sketch-The Last Rose of Summer by Jan HowlettHi All Artist Hearts,
Sorry for the long delay in posting the promised sketch for "The Last Rose of Summer."  We left for a painting vacation September 7th, but I accidentally came away without the photo of the sketch... however, I have continued to make progress with the painting.  We had to slip home to care for the lawns and do some errands which gave me the perfect opportunity to pick up the sketch.   So here it is at last.  Enjoy.

This will be a short update this time, but I will be postin...
