Five Day Challenge – Day 5

After two false starts with acrylics, I went back to my watercolors today….this was the toughest day of all.

Maybe what I learned from this 20 minute painting challenge is that I really do enjoy my watercolors.

Workshop Wonders

Today I took a workshop with the delightful Deborah Ross at the equally delightful Selby Gardens.  Deborah is the artist responsible for the lovely signs that are sprinkled through the gardens. 

No drawing, minimal brush strokes, it was amazing to watch her push and pull her squirrel brush, molding both the big shapes and details in her paintings.  I think I need one.  

Generous, happy and charming, she demonstrated, and came around with individual suggestions and encouragement.  Here are my results.

I think I could get addicted to this.

Favorite Colors……Today’s At Least

So this painting is destined as a donation for the Medford (NJ) Women’s Club for an annual tea fundraiser.  Still behind on this daily painting challenge from the World Watercolor Group (we had an overnight visitor last night…I know…..excuses, excuses).

Lavender/violet are such calming colors for me.  Yet I notice I have none of those colors in my home.  Maybe it’s time to change that.
