A Little Art Everyday

Like most people who enjoy art, I get the urge to create something almost every day.  However, many days I push aside that urge because I feel too rushed, too tired etc. to create my idea of how a final work should look.  I'm taking a cue from so many people in social media who encourage people not to worry about the final outcome but to create without regard to the final result.  So today I pulled out some watercolor pencils and one of those water brushes (I forgot what they're called but the nature of their in-preciseness makes them an ideal choice for a loose watercolor painting).

I got slightly distracted during the sketching when I spotted these two outside and had to run and take a snapshot:
Have a good day; thanks for stopping by.  :0)

Happy Father's Day

For many years while growing up our family took a two week summer vacation to Castleton, Vermont.  We would stay on beautiful Lake Bomoseen, swim in the crystal clear water and go for boat rides.  I have wonderful memories of those family vacations and painted this watercolor card for my father with those memories in mind.  I hope all the Dads enjoy a peaceful, relaxing and joyful day.

Watercolor Pear

......More practice for me in improving watercolor skills........I've been meaning to post this painting for a few weeks and kept forgetting to photograph it.  I painted it on Arches 140 lb. hot press paper using watercolors:

I'm taking online watercolor classes with Anna Mason and this is my painting following her class called Watercolors with WOW.
