My Valentine Gators turned into Swampy Gators and Sandy helped me get the hard edges away from the whites so they weren't so annoying. (When I wasn't liking where they were going, I took some watered down white gesso and, misketing over the gator bodies, I poured the gesso over everything else, letting it run and do it's thing.)

What I Did in Class...
Doesn't that title make you think of your kid (or you) bringing home those drawings you had to put on the refrigerator for months? Or those macaroni pictures (glued bits and different shapes of pastas on paper) you were presented with from vacation camp or bible school?
Well, this isn't that but it is what I worked on in watercolor class yesterday. And I'm quite proud of myself because I kept working and stepping away and working - even though my lower back was killing me :( Must return to the chiropractor...
And I went back to work on the Pitcher Plants - this is on that beautiful piece of Twinrocker paper Sandy gave me as part of a Christmas present (it has the failed painting on the other side and this one is much better already - more rhythm, variety, and better composition).
