Tonks and Blue Shadows.

Earlier this year I made a list of goals – I’ve done quite a few so far and yesterday, we gave ourselves an early anniversary present, which I also happened to put on my “what I want to do this year” list.
 
We got a cat! and named him Tonks.

I had an idea for some watercolor paintings the other day – limited colors with swirls and lines as accents. I centered it, naturally, around a fairy.

At first I thought I would just do something black and white, but then decided a cool palette with blue and light green hues would fit the black accents better.

 

Painting in my Head (#12)

Yesterday, while we were on our walk/hike I stopped and paused and started painting in my head – visualizing the image I was going to paint – and then did a really really rough 5 second sketch in my notebook and called it a day. This morning I created a 6×6 painting of what was going on in my head. I like it ๐Ÿ˜€

Watercolor on the West Coast #9 and #10

Yesterday, I woke up feeling sort of bad and didn’t end up doing anything, so this morning (still sickish) I made two pieces. The first, for yesterday, I just drew in my notebook, and the second is inspired by a friend. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hopefully we’ll all get over whatever we’re coming down with quickly.

Watercolor on the West Coast #1

Yesterday we were driving through Oregon and went from the mountains to the desert. I’ve never been to the desert so my reaction was a mix of “Wow!” and “how weird!” Lots of brown and relatively solitary trees. The sky was stunning even with the heavy rain. So I decided as we drove through that my first daily painting would just be my interpretation of the view.

Serenity

For Christmas I got a wonderful easel, new acrylic paints, and 5(!!!) 16×20 canvasses. When we got home yesterday – after Alex had his fill of playing with his nerf gun – I decided to try it out (love it!). I didn’t really have any thoughts on it, I was just sort of painting and feeling it out (so it’s far from perfect). Cool Palettes are calming to me, so I stuck with blue and green hues, attempted a bonsai-like tree with moss, and finished with a firefly reference and tried my hand at calligraphy/chinese (“Serenity”).
