30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge - #21

Watercolor - 5X7



What's that faint sweet smell in the air?

I think it's the end of the challenge.   And it's bittersweet, really.  I've enjoyed getting back into art.

Not sure what I'll do for the duration- maybe a few more of these.

Nine paintings left...

30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge - #18

7X5 - Watercolor



Still feeling a little under the weather, so I thought I'd do something simple.

During a former watercolor class, the teacher frequently passed out twigs and inks and instructed us to draw with the twigs.   I drew this with thinned black acrylic paint and then laid down a flat wash.

Number 18 is almost finished, but not quite.
I managed to catch my daughter's flu bug, so off to bed I go.

A few problems color correcting, but it is what it is.
Caught up for the moment.  Happy days!

30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge - #10

5X7 - Watercolor

Well, I've got six drawings in progress and have been trying to remind myself that "less is more."  For some reason, I'm not panicking about being REALLY behind in the challenge.

Maybe that's because I've been goofing off.  For instance, I took TWO local "crafty" classes yesterday. This is one example of why I've been too busy to paint.
