Images From My Sketchbook

As I mentioned in my other blog we had a horrible weather in the Midwest the last two weeks and I was too worried to paint.That's why I am offering two pages of my sketchbook. In the first one you can see my daughter at the computer and in the second my husband's white orchid .I used ink pen Millennium/Made in Japan/ and regular kids' Crayola watercolors for the washes.I was surprised by the rich and juicy colors this student grade paints provide .I like them better than some of the brands I buy in the art store.

More Poppies

These two watercolors are about 4 1/2 x 6 inches.For the blue poppy I used a reference photo from the RIL of Wet canvas.Thanks to the person who provided it.
I just enjoyed painting them.
