Fall Leaf In Watercolor Shades – Quote Painting

It’s September and Fall is on it’s way. Leaves are falling and new beginning is calling. To welcoming Fall season, I’ve painted a maple leaf in watercolor fall shades. When I think of fall, I think of maple leaf. Maple leaf is so pretty with its distinguish shape and its changing colors.

I painted the maple leaf in fall colors. I also added a quote “Fall; leaves are falling and new beginning is calling”. It’s a great fall quote painting for your inspiration. Many creations can be creatively created from this piece of fall leaf quote painting.

I started with a thin pencil sketch of a maple leaf. I prepared six colors that representing fall. The six colors are; in painted order :

  1. Burnt Sienna watercolor
  2. Crimson watercolor
  3. Vermilion watercolor
  4. Yellow Ochre watercolor
  5. Lemon Yelow watercolor
  6. Gold poster color

Picture63

I used gold poster color because I don’t have gold watercolor. So, it’s not a certain thing to follow. I love gold leaf look which makes Fall perform in more glamorous way. Like I have mentioned before, this fall leaf quote painting in watercolor shades can be an inspiration to create other creative form to welcome Fall season.

Creativity Quote With Whale Painting

This time I’ve painted a whale in a watercolor, a cute blue whale. I painted it in cartoon style, which I think looks so adorable. I also added a creativity quote “Creativity blows your mind”. The word “blows” relates to the whale’s blowhole, where they blow out all the water that they inhaled before together with the air. And creativity can really blows your mind. Anything seems possible with creativity, no boundaries, mesmerizing, and mind blowing.

Creativity is amazing and so does a whale. A very big mammal that feed, mate, give birth, suckle and raise their young at ocean. And the word “whale” comes from the Old English hwæl, from Proto-Germanic hwalaz, from Proto Indo European (s)kwal-o-, meaning “large sea fish”. Whales have been through some evolving process, from land-living mammals. For instance, whales must breathe air regularly, though they able to remain descend under water for long periods of time and even some whale species can stay below the sea surface for 90 minutes. Some have blowholes, some only have one blowhole (modified nostrils) which you can find it on the top of their heads, the blowhole is where the air is taken in and expelled. Pretty amazing right? So a whale is worth to be at a quote painting of creativity.

I made this quote painting in watercolor as my painting hobby and words playing. A painting and some words play can make an interesting quote painting which leads to printable as decoration or a cover for your agenda or anything you would like to put at. The words and the painting can reminds you and / or at the same time would inspire you.

Quote Painting As Decoration – Be High In Creativity

I was feeling of painting something today and the quote “Be High In Creativity” has been on my mind for a while. The phrase came in mind with a view of pine trees by the coastal area. I painted it in watercolor and the quote painting can be used as a decoration for your home office with a beach home theme.

Picture38

Why did I choose the pine tree to describe my quote? Because it can grow from 3 to 80 m (10–260 ft) tall, with the majority of species are mostly reaching 15–45 m (50–150 ft) tall. Pines are usually long lived kind of tree and typically reach ages of 100–1,000 years, some even more. Pine trees are evergreen which means it still have leaves throughout the year, therefor the tree would look green in any season.  You would probably ask, why a pine tree grow on coastal area? Well, there is one type of pine that usually grow on coastal area and that is Pinus contorta, which commonly known as lodgepole pine and shore pine, or sometimes  known as twisted pine. Contorta pine is a common tree in western North America. It grows near the ocean shore and also in dry mountain forests, but the tree is rare in lowland rain forests.

So for those who love to paint, take your brush and start to paint something beautiful to decorate your home. And for those who love to create something, hope you get inspired to be high in your creativity! Happy creative day and “be high in creativity”!

Lighthouse in Watercolor Hand Panting

Lighthouse is always a fascinating building to see in every seaside. I love the shape, the red and the white colors. Matching with my Nautical Summer theme, I hand drew a Lighthouse by seaside which I hand painted it with watercolor.

lighthouse is a tower designed to serve as a navigational aid for maritime pilots at sea or on inland waterways by emitting light. Basically, lighthouse has two types: a lighthouse on a land and on the offshore. A land lighthouse is simply built to aid navigation more over the land than water. Usually constructed in flatland where a bright lantern could be visible for many miles for traveler who’s disorientated and lost.

Lighthouses mostly mark dangerous coastlines, and were used widely. But due to high maintenance and increasing use of electronic navigational systems, slowly the number of operational lighthouses has declined. Many lighthouses are abandoned and deteriorated along with passing time. Afterwards, the lighthouse become more as preserved building.

I try to preserve it in a hand painted watercolor painting. The lighthouse on a sloping green by the calm sea. A serene look of tough lighthouse. I sketched it with pencil. I painted it with natural colors of brush pen. And for the watercolor, I used red, white, blue, ochre and green.

Picture111

A framed painting could be a great piece to decorate your home. Especially a piece you made, a conversation starter with your guests. Well, hope my Lighthouse in watercolor hand painting inspires you in anything, to paint, to have a vacation, to write a poem, anything that makes you think of seaside, beach, breezy summer, all the coastal beauty.
