I did this while listening to the Kavanaugh circus. Maybe that’s why it was such a struggle. Or I’m just new to watercolor. It is kind of unforgiving. Like life. Some things you cannot just undo or paint over. But then there’s free samples of acrylic gouache (or Lindsey Graham?)! Tune in for that one (not Graham–tune him out!)…
Running out of titles and energy…but I do like this series and glad I decided to stick it out. This is a watercolor version of yesterday’s oil…and yes, different times of day, weather, etc. Except that it’s really too hazy in the mornings…hurts my eyes.
Playing around with watercolors on my porch on another gray day. On a hot pressed watercolor pad I’ve had for over 10 years. I got it to take a botanical illustration class and never used it after that…until now. This kind of grew across the page.
I’m still feeling like I may not make it to the end of the challenge. Today, Sunday, got up late, farmers market, yoga, lunch…and then, too late to do an oil….so I thought I’d try to just do something simple and easy enough to get done before the light for taking a photo was completely gone. I’m actually glad I persisted…but sill, what 6 days more? Sigh.
Another drawing using watercolor to try to figure out these palms!
