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.

  4. Love the twig idea. Like this painting - there is a sense of wistfulness about the pup,, maybe reflecting your current under-the-weather energy level? Take care of yourself.
