Studio Scenes

Hi there! How did half of January pass me by already?

I've been in the thick of painting, scanning, and editing my watercolor paintings in photoshop.  There is so much to learn about digitizing artwork and I've come a long way.  I have so many projects in the works and deadlines fast approaching, but I wanted to post a few small scenes from my many projects. 

This is me, just painting for myself.  I don't do that enough! I got on a kick with brightly colored watercolor cactus and it evolved into something abstract and fun.  I'll be posting more about my abstract cactus paintings later on.

Watercolor Peaches and Abstract Patterns

I know this fruit is totally out of season at the moment, but who doesn't love peaches?

I worked really hard on this collection of watercolor peach paintings and patterns and I loved it!  The colors are to die for!  I will be painting in these colors again.... guaranteed. The abstract patterns were really intuitive and fun to paint.  I felt so free painting these and so like myself.  I've always been a sucker for green.

Watercolor Lemons

Original Watercolor Lemons painting by Elise Engh
Three Yellow Lemons 8x10
Lately, I've been working hard at taming my inner ADD artist and focus more on creating sets of paintings.  It's always been hard for me to stick to just one subject because I have so many ideas! But I'm learning that taking the time to explore a subject more thoroughly just increases the painting ideas I come up with.  It challenges me to figure out more ways to work with one subject.
