Oil Painting, Watercolor and my Dreama Tolle Perry Workshop Samples

Hello friends...how is your physical distancing going?? We are doing pretty good, considering I ate half an apple pie the other night.
Don't judge😃
While staying home, I decided to sign up for an art workshop being hosted by one of my most favorite current artists.

I just adore her style and use of color

 
Luscious..Luscious color!!
It has been a few weeks and I have already completed a few fun paintings.
I am learning so much.

 This is a watercolor, inspired by an image Dreama captured in France.

 Three roses in a blue glass vase

Fat peony in a Ball jar

Gelato anyone?

I am thrilled with all of the tutorials so far.
If you would like more information about Dreama's workshop, you can check them out 
I have also been using the leftover oil paint on my glass palette to create fun little paintings
