Enjoying water media

watercolor and gouache beach study
for a future oil painting

Summertime flowers and fruit

Floral studies in w/c

By staying away from facebook, it seems there is more time to study my craft.  Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy fb, but it can be  a waste of time.  So today it was water media.  I love the fact that watercolor and gouache go so well together.  The beach scene was fun just putting down watercolor transparent washes, then going back in with the opaque gouache. So on a rainy day it is never boring as long as we have art in our lives.  Do hope everyone is busy painting .

I haven't been posting very often on this blog, thought it would be a good idea.  Keeping the blogs up to date is a very good way to keep track of what has been done through the year.  Happy Painting everyone.

Started my day yesterday with an entry into my journal.  Taking a short break from oil painting.
Most of my work is out on display in various places so I just want to unwind.  Love painting in watercolor.

Today is raining and it is only 6am.  Mike and I will be going to the  8 am mass.  So Happy Painting everyone. Enjoy your weekend

From my kitchen
w/c sketch
140 lb. arches

Took out my watercolors to do this from my kitchen, looking out.  It is basically just a gesture of a
summer scene.  I've been working in acrylic and w/c.  Missing my oils. Oh, well.  Hope everyone
is enjoying the summer.  It is going by too fast. Happy Painting everyone.

still life watercolor

Never posted this one.  It was  done over a year ago.  Trying to get back to blogging.
Most of my time and energy has been on painting and posting on dpw and facebook.
Happy Painting everyone.

A study in gouache.  It is going to be a lovely day today.  Want to get some plein air sketching thinking about using gouache.
