How to Paint Lemons in Watercolor

I have a thing for lemons right now.  I love their shapes, their colors, their leaves........ and when you add their blossoms, they make the best watercolor paintings!

New Pastel Spring Florals

Original Pastel Spring Flowers Painting by Elise Engh

Last week I painted a couple of new spring floral watercolor paintings!  The pastel blues, peaches, and greens came together so nicely-  I need to paint more flowers with this color palette.

New Blog Name!

As you may have noticed, my blog name changed!  Spring is a good time to start new things, even though it requires some upheaval.


I am "rebranding" as they say.  So my blog, my Etsy Shop, and my social media accounts all include my name!  Fun stuff! Hopefully it's easier to find me on the web now that names are more consistent.

It's still rainy and cold where I live, but I'm in full Spring mode!  And Spring mode for me means lots and lots of flowers.

Do you like llamas?  I've gotten into painting them lately and I love it!  I painted three watercolor llamas for my shop and even made some patterns with photoshop just for fun!

Studio Scenes

Hi there! How did half of January pass me by already?

I've been in the thick of painting, scanning, and editing my watercolor paintings in photoshop.  There is so much to learn about digitizing artwork and I've come a long way.  I have so many projects in the works and deadlines fast approaching, but I wanted to post a few small scenes from my many projects. 

This is me, just painting for myself.  I don't do that enough! I got on a kick with brightly colored watercolor cactus and it evolved into something abstract and fun.  I'll be posting more about my abstract cactus paintings later on.
