A portrait of fellow Ottawa artist, Eve from @splashofartistry and her enchanting cat, Galatea! I decided to paint this in a more illustrative watercolour style, and layer in pen work for fine detailing. . . . . . . . . . . . #watercolorportrait #watercolourportrait #cats #britishshorthair #portraitart #ottawaartists #ottawamakeupartist

Playing around with portraits this week. This painting of my dear and talented friend @rebeccanoellemusic is done in watercolour using loose painting techniques. I also tried to keep the palette simple, using only four pigments: 🎨Payne’s Grey 🎨Burnt Umber 🎨Permanent Rose 🎨Winsor Blue . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #rebeccanoelle #canadianmusician #watercolorportrait #jazzmusician #jazzart #canadiansinger #watercolourportrait #cartel_watercolorists

As both a Canadian and a Belgian citizen, the poppy holds a special place in my heart. Today the poppy marks something of even greater importance however; it stands as symbol of sacrifice. Whatever you’re feelings about war, or even about peace, it cannot be denied that in order for our societies to arrive at where they are today, significant events had to take place. Among those events have too often been the collateral damage to individuals, their families, and communities. This, we must never forget. 🇨🇦🇧🇪🇨🇦🇧🇪🇨🇦🇧🇪🇨🇦 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #lestweforget #lestweforget🌹 #lestweforget🌺 #poppies #poppy #rememberanceday #flandersfields #flanderspoppy #supportourveterans #supportourtroops #november12 #johnmccrea #watercolour #bruxelles #aquarelle #aquarela #poppypainting #poppyart #watercolour613 #canada #belgium #canadaremembers #weremember #wewillremember #canadaremembers🇨🇦 #canadaremembranceday #watercolourpainting #watercolorartist #canadaartist #ottawaartists

I’ve been wanting to try @arches.art rough grain watercolour paper for some time now, and I finally have with this as my first painting. The paper has a really great texture, and is easy to work on. I painted this little composition using @winsorandnewton watercolour pigments, mostly with wet in wet techniques. . . . . . . . . #watercolor #watercolour #watercolorpainting #watercolourart #watercoloranimals #watercolouranimals #watercolorartist #watercolourartist #animalpainting #winterpainting #winterpaintings #squirrel #squirrelart #squirrelpainting #ottawaart #ottawaartist #cartel_watercolorists

“Do you know what it means, to miss New Orleans?” . NOLA is an enchanting city, replete with architecture, music, art, food, and culture that works its magic into your heart and soul. St. Louis Cathedral in Jackson Square is among those parts of New Orleans that boasts beauty and enchantment (especially given how much it looks like the Disney castle). . This depiction of the cathedral however also nods at the more bewitching aspects of this city. Not only is it known for its massive above ground cemeteries, it is also home of voodoo and accounts of hauntings and supernatural activity. . With Halloween only a few days away, I find myself thinking about the many historically influenced ideas society has about the sinister and supernatural. . This painting was created using @winsorandnewton paints, on @arches.art watercolour paper from @wallacksart . .

- Poisoned Pleasure - “There is a binary of things. The good. The bad. . The apple, proverbial symbol of health, staving off a doctor a day. Wrapped in the contemporary evil, sugar, the enemy. . Both set in contrast to traditional things we fear. The spider. And contemporary fears. Junk foods. . This is the binary. The duplicity of culture and food.” . . This composition is inspired by the idea of contrast. And it’s content is a nod to Halloween, which is fast approaching! .

-Betta Blue and Orange- . “Sometimes new things appear as intrusions. Unexpected. Serendipitous perhaps. Do you adjust or dismiss them. . How do we come to see ourselves as connected to things in our life; or as separate from them. . What do we see as complimentary to who we are. Harmonious. Fitting with our identity. What do we see as not belonging in our lives at all.” . . I have become inspired by the fusion of food and animals. This particular composition was inspired by wanting to display complimentary colours.

Surprisingly the kiwi fruit wasn’t hard to paint, and I’d recommended it for people looking to start painting food. .

This little composition is me trying fuse my love for painting animals, with my new found appreciation for painting food. I’m open to hearing ideas and suggestions for other animal/food combos.

Legalization of Cannabis in Canada!!! As of today, Oct 17th, recreational marijuana will be legal in Canada - but regulations will vary across different provinces. Whatever your stance is on the legalization of this substance, one major benefit transcends potentially polarized perspectives: legalizing cannabis contributes to higher-quality production, and consequently, that can mean safer use, and better informed consumers. This is certainly a milestone for Canada! 🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦 . . . . . . . . . #canadiancannabis #legalcannabis #legalmarijuana #legalizedweed #canadalegalizemarijuana #canada #weed #weed🍁 #marijuana #marijuanaart #weedart #420 #420art #420artwork #watercolor #watercolour #watercolorweed #watercolourpainting #ottawa #ontario #ontariocanada #art #watercolorartist #watercolorplants #abstractwatercolor #abstractwatercolour #artforthesoul #artastherapy #ottawaartist #canadianart

This is a first attempt at a shiny surface. I haven’t painted honeycomb before, and wanted to try it out. I built it up using a sketch, then used masking fluid for highlights, then watercolour. My intention was to stop there, but when I finished with the watercolour layers, I felt a few more little highlights would help make it pop, and I added them in using white pen. I think I’ll try this type of painting again, I enjoyed the challenge of trying out not only new textures, but also working on subtle dimensionality such as the curve on the pooling honey. Maybe I would even add more bees to the next one! What do you think? . . . . . . . . . . #honeycomb #honey #bee #honeybee #watercolorbee #watercolorhoneycomb #honeyart #beeart #honeycombart #watercolorfood #foodwatercolor #foodillustration #watercolourfood #watercolorbee #foodart #foodartist #watercolorartist #watercolourartist #ottawaart #ottawaartists #ottawaartist #natureartist

Here’s hoping everyone had a lovely thanksgiving with friends, family, or perhaps much needed self-care time. We have so much to be thankful for in Canada. Today I’m thankful for the good fortune we have to be in a food affluent community. Not everyone has the privilege to have access to quality, health-supporting food. To me, garlic has always been a symbol of good food, and the different ways we come to see food as good (ex. taste, tradition, health). What are you thankful for? . . . . . . . . . #canadianthanksgiving #thanksgiving #canadian #garlic #garlicpainting #garlicart #foodart #foodpainting #foodwatercolor #foodwatercolour #watercolorfood #watercolourfood #watercolorpainting #watercolourpainting #ottawaart #ottawaartist #watercolourartist #watercolorartist #canadianartist #foodartist

Decided to try expanding my subject matter to food. I haven’t painted an avocado before, and thought it could be a fun little challenge. We tend to get comfortable in our art. And while repetition helps us hone in and improve our style, it can stifle our creativity and limit our breadth. Also, seeing as in Canada this is thanksgiving weekend, it felt appropriate to celebrate this food loving holiday with a food painting. Any suggestions for other food items? . . . . . . . #avocado #avocados #avocadoart #avocadopainting #avocadowatercolor #watercolorfruit #watercolorfood #watercoloravocado #foodart #foodillustration #foodwatercolor #watercolor #watercolour #watercolourpainting #watercolorillustration #ottawaartists #ottawaart #ottawaartist #watercolorart #watercolorartist #watercolourartist
