At Waters Edge Watercolor Lakeside Hills Landscape by Laurie Rohner
Title: At Waters Edge – Medium: watercolor on paper

At Waters Edge is a watercolor a lakeside landscape created from the imagination of my mind. I can feel the air is warm and there is a log I am sitting on though you can not see it. My feet dangle in the cool water. Off in the distance is a green heron looking for some fish. The hills are softly shadowed green by the passing clouds. The world could not be any better. 

Please stop by my online studio and browse the watercolor and oil paintings of flowers landscapes and critters now available.

Don’t you love Spring, I do.

I love spring. The trees pushing their sap up through the trunk and out into their branches. Then seeing the buds start to open and the seeds dangle from the ends. The dirt thaws and the flower bulbs break through up into the sunlight. That always amazes me how these delicate flowers can sprout with so much energy exerted just to be magnificent flowers from a bulb? The wildflowers and garden flowers start in with their dance and spring is alive and the world is singing.

Nature Art Botanical Watercolor
White Tulip with Dew Drops Watercolor Painting

There is a nice subtle effect on the petals of the flower and the dew drops. The droplets seem to shimmer and look as if they will fall at any moment. The high contrast of the background and the white flower is contemporary and dramatic. There are many subtle shades of different colors in this painting. I used my glazing technique layering the pigments on top of themselves creating a luminous depth. Unfortunately a photo is not capable of expressing the dramatic effect I achieve with this method.

Foxglove watercolor, a pink delight.

The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web.   Pablo Picasso
