Bottled at the Source Work in progress pictures

Hi Everyone,

Thought I would share my work in progress pictures of my newest painting "Bottled at the Source".

"Bottled at the Source" original watercolor on 260lb Arches by Carrie Waller

"Fat Bottomed Girls" original watercolor on 260lb Arches 5" x 10" with a 1.5" white border
"Fat Bottomed Girls" is being auctioned at Daily Paintworks, Click Here for Details

Have a great week, see you Friday for Friday Feature:)



  1. Show off! (kidding ;0)) But you are so clever and yet you make it look so easy! I LOVE the little easel too - I have tried to find some over her but have yet to come across them in the UK. The pears look beautiful! :0)

  2. Oh, that's how you do it. Easy enough. haha

  3. I am so amazed at how you start from one side and work across the painting. It is such a gift to maintain the unity you absolutely achieve, by working like that -- I would have a totally discombobulated mess on my hands. Not to mention I'd probably change styles half-way through and it would look like 5 different people painted it! You're amazing and have incredible patience! This is absolutely a winner!

  4. Wow!!! even looking at the WIP it still looks so difficult, Carrie....but a GORGEOUS piece!!! You are so so talented.

  5. Ditto to all the above - fabulous painting - great to see the WIPs too!

  6. It's like magic to see it progress from one photo to another, and you were able to gauge the values in the first bottle accurately again the stark white of the rest of the paper! I would be in total panic mode probably half way, thinking that I have completely messed us the value scheme... I guess our brain work quite differently ;-)

    International artist's competition theme for August/September is "my favorite subject", this would make a nice entry. I can totally picture your beautiful work featured in the magazine ^___^

  7. If you could bottle art, talent and genius ... then you could take out the copyright with this picture: it's all bottles!

    So glad you kept the title for the pears, 'Fat Bottomed Girls' really brings that extra touch!
