Watercolor Peaches and Abstract Patterns

I know this fruit is totally out of season at the moment, but who doesn't love peaches?

I worked really hard on this collection of watercolor peach paintings and patterns and I loved it!  The colors are to die for!  I will be painting in these colors again.... guaranteed. The abstract patterns were really intuitive and fun to paint.  I felt so free painting these and so like myself.  I've always been a sucker for green.

Lately, I've been working hard at taming my inner ADD artist and focus more on creating sets of paintings.  It's always been hard for me to stick to just one subject because I have so many ideas! But I'm learning that taking the time to explore a subject more thoroughly just increases the painting ideas I come up with.  It challenges me to figure out more ways to work with one subject.
