One more flower painting inspired by Jean Haines' beautiful painting style. I feel very at home

This is one of the paintings I've started during the wonderful Jean Haines workshop three weeks ago and now I've finished it. Maybe it's a little bit overworked, but it's such a nice idea for a larger version that I hope you enjoy it too.

The first wash on this was done as a warm-up exercise during the  fabulous workshop by Jean Haines two weeks ago and I've immediately discovered one butterfly. Now at home I look at this exercise again and the more I dive into this gorgeous flowing colors and textures, the more butterflies appear. Sure it's really abstract, but if you believe in fairies, you could see them too.

Wish you all a very happy and creative new week,

Cordially yours

 Bò Gàidhealach  - Scottish Highland cattle (Scottish Gaelic: Bò Ghàidhealach; Scots: Heilan coo) are a Scottish cattle breed. During our St. Peter-Ording holidays October 2015 I've discovered this marvelous, so peaceful and paint worth looking cows on a trip to the nearby Denmark. I've taken a lot photos and at the first sight I've known, I would love to paint this gorgeous animals. This is my first Highland Cattle painting.

Back from a famous watercolor workshop by Jean Haines in Hampshire.  
Heart and brain full of energy and ideas for new paintings and very thankful to have had this great opportunity. Jean Haines is not only an immensely talented, world famous and highly sought-after artist, warm-hearted, extremely humorous person, but also she is an extremely dedicated teacher. During this workshop was not just impetus, guidance and new ideas but passion and enthusiasm for our great shared love

I'm sure, we'll meet in future and look forward for see her again and paint together.

At every of the 4 workshop days I've met wonderful new people and have shared unique and beautiful moments. 



the lovely Jean Haines and me 



Happy and creative new month. And of course - may light and color be with you. 






yours, isabella
