TGIF: Relative Proximity

Relative Proximity by Karen Gadient, 2015

Another “FingerPaintingFriday” from me: painted with my fingers and nails using watercolor and a little bit of gouache. Lots of nail scraping here.

Enjoy your weekend, friends!

My #KaleidoSaturday images from last week and today.

First one was made from one of my old paintings. Second one was made from a garden photo, enhanced with some extra editing.

Have a lovely weekend!

Between the Skies

Between the Skies by Karen Gadient, 2015

It’s “FingerPaintingFriday” again! This one was created with pearlescent watercolor as the base with some regular watercolor on top. I used my fingernails as much as my fingertips, which I think lends a nice effect. To keep the lines clean, I wiped off the nail between scrapes―which also helped when finally scrubbing my nails clean when I was done!

Enjoy your weekend, friends. :)

Colorful View from the Water

Colorful View from the Water by Karen Gadient, 2015

While organizing my files, I discovered a wider version of a blue-and-white artwork I did last year and I remembered how much I liked it—so I reworked it with pretty much all the colors of the rainbow, partly from scanned watercolor. Figured I’d share the results here. Hope you’re having a great week!

Desert Vista

Desert Vista by Karen Gadient, 2015

Since I had some friends ask to see one of my graphite watercolor landscapes, I’m posting this one (because David likes it and he makes me smile―plus he’s the one who drives me all over the place to see pretty things). Mind you, I’m no landscape artist… I’m just someone who has seen many miles of desert here in Arizona and I like to keep some of it in my sketchbooks. :)

Have a great week!
