Inspired by Watercolors


I like the impressionistic style of painting and I like the watercolors colors flow and dance together. The paintings children create in Waldorf classrooms are so peaceful and beautiful. I like to use this loose style of "painting" the dresses on my needle felted dolls.



Apple blossoms start out dark pink and then lighten to white.





I think her dress looks very much like a Waldorf painting.


She was one of my first fairies. I had dyed wool and as the colors were laying to dry, I noticed how they were the colors of the sunset and was inspired to create her.
