I recently was inspired to do a series of the four seasons in mixed media as an art journal type format. I used watercolors as the base and stenciled over with acrylic and accented with ink and paint pen. They are each on 12" x 9" Canson Mixed Media Paper. I had a lot of fun with these and like the whimsical look! My personal favorite is "Autumn"! I just love how that one turned out!

Thanks for looking!!!

 These are so pretty. My favorite is Spring. I really like the foliage at the bottom. They each have a dreamy yet determined expression.

Beautiful quartet of ladies!  I'm going to agree with you and go with Autumn as my favorite too ( I really like how those red leaves contrast with the yellow/green background), but all four are lovely.  In addition to the seasons, I could also see them being associated with the four elements (wind, water, fire, and earth).
