Stephanie Fehrenbach  Painter. Teacher. Flower Lover. Waterloo, Ontario 🇨🇦 🌼 NEW Watercolour Workbook! ⬇️

I love scratching little lines and shapes into my paintings....usually I use the palette knife but sometimes the end of my brush will do. So many little details you have to look closer to see

I'm obsessed with Kayla Gale's @slow.season Motherhood artwork. Please check her out if you haven't already!! Her work makes me ball happy tears thinking about this past year with my little Ben. It's so hard isn't it? I love watching him grow into such an amazing little human, but I wish I could hold him as a baby forever too. My sweet husband ordered a commission of one of her drawings for Mother's Day and I can't wait to see what she's created for me!
Wishing all you Mama's a very happy day! You deserve it!! 💗

Happy Day 6! Peony Day!
I just love how @rachelann_designs really made these her own. So Gorgeous! 💗

#showmeyourflorals Day 5 & we're actually going to paint peonies tomorrow yay!!! A lot of you have been asking about water lines and if you're using too much water.  So....yes, extra water will give you those effects, BUT that's not always a bad thing! I love the unique quality those lines add to my paintings and often do it on purpose!

I wanted to show you guys this yellow peony because it's one of my favourites & a good example of how you can use water lines to create interesting texture in your work.

I made this one on practice paper (Fluid 100 cold-pressed) & I thought it was looking a little flat at first, but when I added extra water by dripping it on top of some of my petal shapes I loved how the texture really added interest & gave the petals a light and feathery look.

Happy Friday Everyone!

Can you tell which one is Arches? Left or Right?
.Day 4 of #showmeyourflorals and we're almost ready to move on from basic techniques into florals YAY!! I'm always going on about the importance of good quality paper so here's a little example for ya!

Both of these papers are 140lb Cold Press you may think they would be the same but no! One side is Arches brand and one side is Fluid 100 brand. They behave so differently and it makes a huge difference when you're painting loose florals like this. Can you tell the difference?
