Continuing the zodiac series: Pisces...



Een beetje laat maar als mijn goede voornemen voor het nieuwe jaar heb ik besloten om dit jaar te wijden aan het afmaken van de dierenriemserie.
Dat wordt een interessante onderneming want behalve dieren zitten er in de dierenriem ook mensen, zoals de Boogschutter, Waterman en Tweelingen. 
Mijn aanpak tot nu toe was om eerst kleinere probeersels te maken om het onderwerp te exploreren. Soms vind ik de probeersels leuker dan het grotere eindproduct.
Dit is wat ik tot nu toe geschilderd heb, zie hieronder.

A little late but as my new year's resolution I have decided to dedicate this year to completing the zodiac series. 
That will be an interesting journey because besides animals the zodiac contains people as well, like Sagitarius, Aquarius and Gemini. 
My approach until now has been making smaller thumbnails first to explore the subject. Sometimes I like the thumbnails better than the final product. 
This is what I have painted so far, see below.


thumbnails 19 x 20 cm


final paintings 20 x 28 cm

Ik schilder vaker meerdere versies van één onderwerp.
In januari heb ik heel veel sneeuwklokjes geschilderd. En binnenkort heb ik daar spannend nieuws over!

I often paint several versions of one subject.
In January I have painted a lot of snowdrops. And soon I'll have some exciting news about them!

Judy, first thank you so much for the favorite on the app. I recently joined it.
Your zodiac series is very good, and I'm waiting for my sign , the Scorpio, that should be very interesting.

Dear Judy - wow you have been very busy painting. Your Pisces is super! Love everything - especially the lion...I am so drawn to cats large and small. Yours is beautiful. Hope February brings you many more paintings and hope you will share them. Working in a series sounds like a great idea. I know often I paint the same subject over and over...not sure they improve but think it helps one to really see. You certainly have a way with those snowdrops...so pretty. Hugs!

I am so glad to see you continuing with the zodiac series. I love the way you put so much movement in this one, and the harmonious palette make it so soft and calming.
The snowdrops watercolors look wonderful! I have been surprised by the real ones this year. Normally we don't see them here until the end of March, but this warm winter they bloomed at the end of January. So, spring IS coming, there's no turning back!
