Custom Watercolour - A sports lover is born.....

Basketball custom piece 2

Basketball custom piece

This is a custom watercolour I completed for a client last week....The Baby is turning one and is already a big sports fan of Basketball...I am having so much fun with these custom paintings....and I love the stories behind them too...


I would have never every imagined that I would love creating watercolour paintings....but I love it...one of my favorite mediums these days to work in....


I use liquid watercolours ....I find the colours are so clear and crisp....versus the solid stuff....

I also am a big fan of the Montval Watercolour paper from France...it has such a great feel to it and the weight is perfect....140 lb.....


Well I am doing some fun projects that I will be showing over the next week....and I have to start some free downloads for Valentine's day so be sure to pop back for those....


Happy Saturday!!!!


Have a wonderful weekend......
