Basil and Tomato

Basil and Tomato

What I love about the summer , basil and tomato salads and love painting this subject before the salad.  Tomorrow, maybe peaches and strawberries.   This is a gouache painting on crescent board. 5x7



I love these flowers, this is a watercolor I did in my journal  in the spring.  Where has the time gone.  Here we are in the midst of a hot July.  Maybe it's time to get back to my journal, it's so very easy to do everyday., no cumbersome supplies to lug around.  Okay, I will look at my fellow bloggers for some inspiration .  Happy Painting everyone.

Fun Things

Rotring ArtPen
Saturday was a day of just adding sketches and doodles into my journal.  I forgot to post this one, done with my rotring ArtPen, love the tones that happen when applying water with the waterbrush.  Lots of fun.

Happy Painting everyone.

Still life studies

Blue Vase and daffodils from England
Once again studying Charles Reid approach,  modified contour in graphite and watercolor.
Yesterday Mike and I went to Trader Joe's for flowers.  My grandchildren returned home on Monday.  So to keep myself busy, painting always helps, especially when doing contour drawing.  All in all, I will try to post more on this blog.  Happy Painting everyone.

First watercolor sketch of the 2013

I realized that I have neglected my daily journal.  I have been posting in my other blog, and  fb.  Just couldn't keep up  with my journal.  Hopefully I will be able to do more entries within the next few months.

Happy painting everyone.
