A Watercolor Valentine From Me to You…


I am feeling LOVE in the air so I got out my fantastic new watercolours from Kuretake and some Rhonna Designs and sat down to create a Valentines Cards for my hubbie. love is ...

This is the original painting that I painted using Kuretakes Metallic water colors. They are such  WONDERFUL paints. I hadn't used them before, and I do a lot of watercolor painting and I can honestly say that I FELL in love with the quality and they wonderful shimmer of the paint.

Take a look at some of the pictures that I took of my painting. I loved shooting on a macro setting while taking pictures of it just to get the awesome glimmer & color!

Then I took it a step further…

I scanned my watercolor into my computer. I them used my Adobe Photoshop CS5 program to alter & posturize my painting.
