World Watercolor Month Day #30

It was apparently too hot to blog yesterday although I did sit outside and then inside to paint. That was about all I did, LOL. Sat outside in the warm morning

Painted this:

and doodled a bit inside and then painted from the previous day’s photos”

World Watercolor Month Day #16

After procuring some coffee, I returned to my front yard to enjoy the view. Also saw a hummingbird flying around and a wasp drinking out of the bird bath.

What does one do on one’s day off while waiting for evening watercolor class? Moves around the geranium to a more picturesque location and then gives it all the leftover clean water as a reward. Now it’s time for dinner and off to class.

World Watercolor Month Day #4

Also known as the Fourth of July. Was so hot as I left work I decided to come home and find something to paint at my house. My one geranium has all its first flowers going on so I moved it to be in the view.

First this. Second night painting on this multimedia paper – Canson 98lb 9×12″. It’s smooth but also light so you have to be careful. No do-overs.

Then I did this of just the geranium, 4×6″ Canson Montval watercolor paper coldpress 140.

After scanning and exporting etc in Pixelmator, I tried a kaleidoscope effect on the first image and liked this one.

Blooming!

Everything’s very green but this week the peonies and early day lily Stella D’Ora are blooming! And one of my winter-overed geraniums is going to bloom soon enough – lots of flower buds forming!

Blooming!

Day Two Of Painting Before The Clouds Set In

Today was sunny again but not the bright blue skies of yesterday. At one point I thought I’d have to throw everything into the back of the car due to what looked like imminent rain but the darkness passed and I kept going. Came home and gave the front yard a quick clip and now it’s time to wash all these clothes. First thing I did yesterday was get a sleeve into quinacridone violet and touch my skirt and paper. Oh well. Today I came home splattered with greens but less on my clothes.

Diligence is the mother of good luck.
