Watercolor RED HAIR GIRL painting

Since the winter is approaching, and with it snow, I wanted to paint a snowy scenery.

And as I do not do portraits and people a lot, but want to, I found this one perfect choice.

In my reference photo there is no hair, but I decided at the end to add red hair to that girl. 🙂

I encourage you to try sketching yourself, but if not, you are welcome to use my sketch. And you can also add hair, red or other, or not… your painting your choice…

Watercolor STONE HOUSE WALL painting

I was asked on my YT channel from a friend to paint a house or a city so I decided to paint a stone house wall. Not sure if that is exactly what I was asked, but it is how I saw it.

I hope you will like it and maybe try to paint it yourself… 🙂 It is really not difficult at all.

Watercolor SEA WAVE easy painting

As I am a sea lover and that is my favorite theme to paint, it is only natural that I painted this beautiful wave. I tried to simplify it as possible and made a template from my sketch so you can also use it if you decide to paint this one. I used liquid masking fluid for the top of the wave, and masking fluid in pen for the foamy parts on the wave (with it I can be more precise and detailed). 

At the time this was published the video is not yet on my channel, but it is soon to be (Friday 4th). 🙂 

I hope you will enjoy… 🙂

Watercolor PUMPKINS at the DOOR easy painting

This is an quick sketch for my autumn welcoming painting – some pumpkins at the door. 🙂

You can of course paint it whole or paint only pumpkins. It is up to you and your preference. 🙂

I am feeling the fall and usually I am not too happy summer being over but this time, I don´t know why, I am. Maybe because I made peace with myself, hence with the nature also and it´s changes and course. 

I hope you will enjoy… 🙂

Watercolor SUCCULENT easy painting

This pretty little plant is so easy to paint and to make it even easier for you guys I drew a sketch which as always is free for download from that button below…  

As you will see I painted it in couple of layers but you can of course do as many layers as you wish and up to a point where you see what you like. I wanted saturated color for more realism, but you can paint it using less pigment so it looks more like watercolor and looser.

I hope you will enjoy… 🙂

Watercolor BEE ON LAVENDER painting

I haven´t painted animals in the while and even though I love butterflies and I would choose to paint one before all others, this time I wanted to paint this cute little bee. Nature is amazing and when I came across a photo of that bee I had to paint it.

I did not try to be precise but rather enjoyed myself playing with paint. Hope you like it.

Butterfly mood III

So I found today this saying I loved from Rabindranath Tagore : “The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough.”

I suppose we all rush somewhere all the time, and constantly miss the small things that actually worth the most – see and hear other people, enjoy what we love, hug the other person,…. Every now and then we should stop and count those small moments and maybe we will realize that they make our life rich and well spent….

As I wrote in my last post I made a new butterfly video and this time abstract one. It is published on my YouTube channel so please go check it out here or click on the video. 

For those who have Instagram profile please use #renatatotart and tag me @renatatotart if you do the painting, so I can see it…I would love to see you stopped and took the time to do something for yourself…

Thank you…
