Watercolor - "Corkscrew"

I posted my drawing of this watercolor the other day and wanted to show the finished watercolor. I had fun with this one- no problems to fix or paint to lift in frustration. Just a nice, enjoyable painting day- hopefully that doesn't mean today won't go well....I am going to sit down and work on some Christmas card ideas. I used to paint my own cards, and it has been a while. I think, mainly, because I wait until almost Thanksgiving to get to it. I should be painting sandy snowmen in July. Hopefully, I will have a few cards started to show tomorrow.
Thanks for visiting!


  1. Sheryl Wow! Amazing! How did you make it so bright the bottle opener?



  2. Ciao, Franz! Thank you so much! I am working lately with painting reflections- practice until it is easier- It is all about the shadows and especially highlights. Very fun also.

  3. Beautiful, Sheryl.
    Isn't it wonderful when it all goes well from beginning to end? :) xx

  4. Thanks, Pat! It sure is wonderful when that happens!

  5. Very nice, I find metal to be so hard to paint, I look forward to seeing your cards.

  6. Wonderful painting. You really captured the sparkle of the metal! I have a tough time capturing light and reflection. Connie

  7. Wow! I love that corkscrew, what a fantastic painting! And you know it looks effortless too, you can tell you were feeling your groove. :)

  8. ...very cool. You really captured the feel of metal! I do my own Christmas cards too...mine are usually going out the weekend before Christmas. I wait way too long. Good luck with yours!

  9. Thank you Connie! I am really working with it lately, trying to make it easier to paint metal.
    Crystal- thanks for visiting and for the wonderful compliment!
    Kelly- thanks for stopping by and looking! So far, so good on the cards!

  10. Dear Sheryl,
