A Little Paint Before Sewing

When I got home tonight, I meant to get right down to sewing. I’m making good progress there but there’s a lot to do. And it was cool and much more pleasant to work and iron in than the last few days.

On the way to the sewing machine though I got distracted by the palette that was waiting on the table and I remembered how the light was hitting the front garden this morning. I thought at the time, ‘oh, hmmm, you’d have to lay in the yellow highlights first and then put in the darker greens.’

Anyway, I gave it my best to see how that might work out and the test was pretty good although the composition needed better planning. These are both pretty small – postcard size – but the principles of big juicy watercolor still applied!
