'Tis The Season Holiday Class! - A Few Of My Favorite Things
Create a Collection of Your Favorite Holiday Treasure To Enjoy All Year Long
One of the best parts to the holidays, for me, is rediscovering favorite keepsakes and ornaments as I unpack them. It has always struck me as a shame that we usually one get to enjoy them a month out of the year.
With this in mind, I started creating "Composite Pages" of some of my favorites each year. A composite page is simple a grouping of themed or like items. In the art above, I saw the grouping of birds and immediately saw a "choir!" I opted to add that to the group of birds so that the art had a story to tell.
Come and join me to create Composite Pages to enjoy long after all holidays have been packed away!
Laure Ferlita is an accomplished watercolorist residing in sunny Florida. Watercolors, nature, travel, painting on location, sketching for the joy of it, and most especially, color, are her passions!
Vibrant color can be found in almost any subject and its shadows. It is her joy to bring those colors to life on paper with some paint and a little water. For many years, Laure worked as a graphic designer, so you will most likely see a strong graphic element in her work.
She started sharing her joy and love of sketching on location over at ImaginaryTrips.com in 2009 and has helped many "travelers" to find their artistic voice since then.
“Watercolor, for me, is the perfect sketching medium." Laure says. “It provides ease of use, quick color saturation, and clean up is a snap and really, you don't need much equipment. After you move past the hype of how difficult watercolor can be, you find out how much fun it is to get out there and actually create on location. It's way too much fun!"
