"The Orange Stands Alone", 5x7" Watercolor on 140#Arches
I was waiting around for a guest to check in and started painting the fruit on the dining room table. I didn't expect to finish this. Someone usually shows up and I don't go back to the study.
White China, 5"x7" Watercolor on 140#Arches
I thought I would try this again only in watercolors. I've been going back and forth between the two mediums and today I decided to compare them directly with the same set up and colors. So here is the watercolor and the oil is on Feb. 7th. Let me know which you like better.
Pear, Grapes and White China Box: 8"x8" Watercolor on 140#Arches
I worked on this today to submit to The Complete Artist website. We usually keep teabags in the box. Right now it looks like a mini treasure chest. :)
United Methodist on Third Street, 7"x5" Watercolor on 140#Arches
I rushed to get this painted today. I'm feeling guilty about not having something posted every day. I have taken lots of photos of my neighborhood for small paintings.
"Wade Lake in Western Montana", 15"x9" Pastel on multimedia paper
I got into Susan's workshop by calling to see if anyone backed out at the last minute. Hooray, I got in!
I have been holding onto the photo of this scene and afraid to attempt it. Luckily, I brought it to the workshop and voila. It may not be perfect, but the study now gives me the courage to tackle the subject in a much larger format in oils. (Hope to get to this by summer.)
I was hoping to post another watercolor featuring Selinsgrove PA, but I got side-tracked with this subject. I wanted to capture the tomato before it started to shrivel. Also, the stem shadow was calling to me. SO, I decided to tackle this as a warm-up. I got this done fairly quickly but now I am to going to the Campus Theatre to see the "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo."(Amer. version - I loved the Swedish version and may be disappointed, but what the heck.) Should be home in time for the Super Bowl.
