Lately, I seem to be going through SO much blue and indigo colored paint. Pretty much every time I go to work on something I quickly realize that I have to order a few new tubes of my favorite blue hues. I don’t know what it is about those blues and indigos right now, but I just can’t get enough of them in my work! Thankfully, one of my latest ideas worked perfectly with a simple blue and white aesthetic. Thank goodness!
For the last few months, I’ve had this idea to do something inspired by a fusion of Mediterranean colors and a simple, yet classic, Hampton’s influenced style of décor. I didn’t know exactly how I wanted this collection to look in the end, so I kind of just sat down and got to work. Whatever came to my mind was what I ended up painting. That created this beautiful new collection of blue and white sea life prints and patterns.
My main focus ended up being on jellyfish and seaweed. Both have a unique way of moving in the water and I was sooooo eager to try to capture that movement in watercolors. From there, I played around with literally dozens and dozens of different patterns until I settled on about 10 that I thought fit best with the theme. A beautiful new collection was born!
Though I obviously love everything I paint and create, there is something special and near to my heart about this one. I can’t quite put my finger on what it is, but I know these pieces will be favorites of mine for years and years to come. I hope you love them, too!
