Violet flowers watercolor painting 11x16 inch done on 300gm2 Arches watercolor paper. I used the negative painting technique which consists of painting around an object instead of painting the object itself, in watercolors negative technique produce beautiful results. I like this technique as it gives a mystery to the painting, and let the objects blend in the painting nicely. checkout this interesting tutorial done by Catherine de ryck about negative painting, very nicely done.

Abstract nubian village in watercolors done on 300 g/m2 Arches paper 10x14 inch. I used a new technique which is color layering, and it happens that I like it a lot, it makes all the elemnts of the painting merge in harmony, such as this painting where the blue tones create the dominant ambiance.
