Blue Ornament for 2015

Blue Ornament for 2015
matted 12x12 inches watercolor 

The Jo Mackenzie Watercolor painting of the day is a blue ornament for the year 2015. I see from this that I have learned how to "lean in " and find my darkest elements and how to use neutrals to make surrounding colors pop. That is good progress for this year.


  1. Your ornaments are very nicely done. They are volumness (new word) and breathe. I once had an instructor that taught that a painting is THERE when it speaks and breathes. I so admire your tenacity and discipline. I wish I could paint quickly...unfortunately oils take time. I love your use of neutrals.
