Jane Minter, of Jane Minter's Sketchbook blog, has awarded me the Versatile Blogger Award.
She got her award from Irina of Irina's Paintings and Stuff blog - and Irina awarded me at the same time. Jane is just catching up.
So I'll just say thanks so much for thinking of me and my art when this came to you, Jane. But I won't go into the things about me and the others I need to send to (already having done that the first time).
Tomorrow, I may go over to paint with Deb and Sharon.
I'm also going to do a little more practice with wet-in-wet before starting on the Caw Girl redo, like the little leaves continuing below...
The next step in the book (the book is called Wet-on-Wet Watercolour Painting by Ewa Karpinska and I recommend it to anyone wanting to learn more wet-in-wet techniques): Actual paintings using the wet-in-wet techniques Ms. Karpinska demonstrates.
The first painting is apples on a counter with a window in back. I have the first bits of this done and next step is working on the apples.
I'm using Saunders Waterford coldpress 140# paper for this and it holds the moisture well. It has a warmer tint to the paper than Arches or Fabriano. (I kind of like the abstract look of this at this stage :)
