Summer Begins

Summer is in full swing... and color is everywhere... 

How I love summer with all the beauty popping up outside all over... Farmer Markets to go to, bunches of
flowers to pick and sketch and paint.... oodles of fresh vegetables... Sunflowers... birds... and wonderful .. 
lighting effects, early morning sunshine... endless... I hope you are getting inspired and painting your heart out!
I know I am...

When Traveling Light

I went on a short trip this past week.... and did not want to bring my  bag of watercolor stuff...but could not bare the thought of not having something to paint or draw with... so I stuck my watercolor pencils in my bag with a tiny sketch book... and when the time was right... I enjoyed a good morning catching light on potted flowers that were sitting on the patio... You can have fun with it...and using a wet brush... make the pencil act like a wash...I thoroughly enjoyed it .
