We expected big rain today so we (Karen and I) decided to meet at her house "snuggle in" as she suggested and draw and paint there. Karen set up an array of flowers that her sweet husband
had brought her for their anniversary of 20 yrs; and I liked this arrangement you see below
in a black lacquered tray in front of the couch.
I stood above it looking down at first and drew what I saw. The tin to the side of the gourds has a
candle burning inside it.
Then I used watercolors first, then ink, then Tom Bow Black and Greens.
For some reason I did it in my sketch book, instead of on watercolor paper, but it's 90 lb paper and
it held the water well.
Then I moved over to her kitchen bar area and sat on a stool to draw this arrangement of a curving succulent plant in a purple vase. The sun (it never did rain) was streaming in the window and making wonderful shadows to capture in gray watercolor paint.
She was finished with her pumpkin painting from last week, but can you believe this? I went there WITHOUT my camera! No! ME? NEVER!!! Yes, I did. So you'll have to wait another week to see it, but believe me it is awesome!
We just had time to take a brisk walk along a very beautiful bike trail behind her house. It felt wonderful to be in the sun and fresh air. Temperature just right and beautiful colors and foliage to see and enjoy.
A great Friday Painting Day~!
PS: I have signed up for two more Terry Bandera's watercolor classes for later this month!
