I’ve always loved watercolor art since I was a kid. Partly because I have always been one for instant gratification, and let’s face it, a cup of water, a brush, and a palette of dried paints had you moments away from your next great masterpiece. I loved it! Not nearly as messy as other art projects. I never really liked the “messy” crafts.
What I love most about watercolor though, is its effortless beauty. Also, we’re seeing it everywhere – in art, fashion, design and more. I also appreciate the range it can take on. It can be dark and moody, pale and ethereal, bright and punchy.
Here are some pieces of art that I have been pinning recently. I’m in the market for some happy, lighthearted and colorful prints. What do you think? Could you imagine any of these on your walls? Most of these are fun pieces for a kitchen, and pretty little accents for a bedroom or small space. I like the idea of a few small prints hanging together, or two larger side by side. Maybe one leaning up on a nightstand.
Cherry Blossom Tree print found here.
Tomatoes in Mint Bowl and Orange – by Joy of Color artist on Etsy. I really love this artists use of color and everyday items in a kitchen.
Happy little Giraffe, I really love this one.
I would love this little 7″ x 5″ Peacock leaning on my nightstand. For $7, I can’t find a good reason not to purchase this.
Lucile’s Kitchen puts out some really fun, bright and kitchen-appropriate art that really sets itself apart. She has a way of beautifully and artfully arranging ingredients that makes you just stop and stare, don’t you think? There’s so much detail, I notice something new every time I look at them. These will definitely be hanging in my kitchen sometime in the near future!
Enjoy your Sunday!
