Yesterday I posted my initial images for both my watercolor butterfly and my jogger poster poem (seem on the right hand side in the two comparisons below.
The images don’t show the difference as well as I seem them live, so I notated change types 1-3 on the butterfly; the jogger work-up is of course much more easily apparent with text and some color 😊
Change type 1 was inserting white gouache to differentiate the striation sections of color on the top wings’ markings, while change type 2 was adding white slash-dot along the bottom left border before the more solid magenta bordering.
Change type 3 a little harder to see the effect of, but I ran a thin white gouache line of varying width around the perimeter of the butterfly’s wings, occasionally letting some of the magenta wash from the thicker pigment stay in place. Hard to tell with all the thick line and numbering marking, but I think it does set the butterfly off, or away, from the background so it’s more easily focused on. I may accentuate that more, but if so, I don’t think it’d be much. Could change my mind, but not leaning that way for now 😊
The update changes to Jogger way more apparent – bird in the top right, the poem itself, and a gradient light across the whole sheet.
The changes / additions of color to Jogger will appear much more substantial in the next, possibly last update.
Both works are near finished, but we’ll see 😊
Meanwhile, another, different excerpt from Jogger below, though you should be able to see the whole poem in the gallery comparison above —

til the heart jumps out of idle
to cruise the hot blue skies
Tomorrow, if time permits, Thursday at the latest I hope, both images should be done ♥️
For reference – my 1st digital line art / poem / wash (done recently) was Little Dancer.
While my most recent butterfly watercolor superimposed on line art was Floating Butterfly.
My digital art is done with Affinity Photo, and my watercolor art via Arteza’s Real Brush Pens. It’s possible I may add some Daniel Smith tube watercolor to my butterfly, but that’s also on an “we’ll see” basis, lol!
Take care everyone! Be safe & stay creative! 💕

- September 20, 2021 – Dappled Light, “Figures in a Landscape Study” Still Not Done, But, Already a Learning Tool For Me!“Learning Tool for Me” is part of my blog title today simply ’cause I’ve looking at this post as specifically geared to get me where I wanna go – keeping in mind my destination is a generalized abstraction of image / feeling / and intuitive aspiration (hopefully including figurative work) & it’s reached a point of development over my previous renditions that I now need to put my resolve into concrete, hopefully creative, useful thoughts for my future directions. Lot of contradictions. Like life. Like me 😊 Here goes (for now) —
- September 19, 2021 – Dappled Light, “Figures in a Landscape Study” ContinuedJust a quick post updating yesterday’s release showing what I’ve changed/added on to a watercolor on paper I’d 1st posted about on Sept 7th…A bigger factor in today’s image update is the addition of more “white”.
- September 18, 2021 – Dapple Light, My Creative Conundrum and CaldronMy regular readers know I’ve been more and more attracted to the idea of being able to paint dappled light, consciously, and hopefully, eventually more spontaneously. I titled my post to include both “conundrum” – which I kept misspelling til I looked it up 😊 – and “caldron” – which I keep feeling my creative heart and mind are swimming in (over their heads) lol!

- September 15, 2021 – Birds at Pfluger Bridge Austin @FineArtAmericaBirds at Pfluger Bridge Austin is an 11×14 oil painting I finished a little over 3 years ago, but never wrote up about individually on my blog. I realized this was the case when I tried to find my WordPress image from an older blog post to include in my most recent post; about birds of course 😊 Why I hadn’t done a post, announcing when I’d uploaded it to Fine Art America is simply that I….
- September 14, 2021 – Playing with 4K Video to Grab Still ShotsNow that we’ve had our bird feeder up a few months at our new location, we’ve come across a wider variety of birds (and other critters) and’ve been working at grabbing shots of birds in motion I might could use for sketches and such 🦅
Thanks again, everyone! 😊
