Two Candles, A Still Life in Watercolor Paint
Two Candles, Watercolor on Paper, 7/8/2012
I picked up some watercolors which I haven’t used in many, many years. And did a still life of two candles I have in my home. They are two very nicely scented Yankee candles that are sitting on a ledge next to each other. One is lit and and the yellow-orange wax is illuminated and the accompanying candle is violet, capped, and has a reflection of the flame on the side. I used a lot of wet on wet techniques that shows in the pigments bleeding into each other with some dry brush on many of the details.

Wow, just wow…. accomplishing something like a still life of something moving and in watercolors is remarkable and I swear I can almost catch a glimpse of the inviting smell from these. Thank you very much for sharing!
