Valentine Hearts everywhere! It's their first Valentine's Day, and their hearts are beating as one ... You can find a print of this romantic V Day print in my shop.
This was fun to paint free-hand, with no initial pencil sketch, and to try to get the gesture of the kiss with only a few brush strokes.
Action shot of adding the red dress hearts, with the watercolor freshly painted.
And adding the black contrasting background.
The kiss deepens ...
Getting in the mood for Valentine’s Day: painting lots of reds and pinks! For a print of this illustration, please visit my shop.
This photo of a gorgeous Marchesa Fall-Winter 2013 fuchsia gown inspired me to let loose with a few suggestive brush strokes and some black contrast drama for a quick sketch.
Straight to watercolor sketching, no pencil these days ... mostly. Like learning to let go of crutches ...
And jumping to black for added drama.

With Valentine's Day fast approaching, I was inspired to paint a V-Day kiss and to experiment with a looser watercolor style. It's good to show some love to that untapped potential that comes with getting outside of your own comfort zone. And this Valentine's, I'd like to do just that.
