Josie really loves painting --on good paper and with very runny watercolor that blend and soak in. She has a nice eye for color but isn't especially representational as yet. I saw a bird in this first one and added a bit. She was pleased.
One can see all kinds of things in these two.
This below is also a collaboration--but I did the ink drawing first and then she added the color.
She is very serious about all this. When I tried to give her some cheaper paper (which didn't soak up the colors in the same way,) she was outraged. Fortunately, she's happy with the cheap watercolor set from the grocery store--and I have to say, the colors are intense.
She often starts with a circle and then adds stuff. I like the dots here below.
For some perspective, the work below is by Helen Frankenthaler--with a suggested price of 75K.
Josie may be on to something.
