last hurrah

$80 - 8x10"watercolour painting
Well, this is the last hurrah, or at least the last still life set up for the year. The group I paint with doesn't reconvene until the new year. Hopefully, I'll set up some small still lifes on my own over the holidays. : )
here are some close ups -

snowy path

Finally! Lots of snow for me to paint! I love painting snow, it's nice and 'contrasty'.

Here's the drawing I drew while walking down the street. I added lots of watercolour once I got home. : )

past the hot dog stand

The walking while drawing sketches are so fun to do. I just draw what I see, impulsively, and hope it works out. Sometimes it does... sometimes it doesn't. Either way the line is nice and loose. At home, I add fresh watercolour.

Still pluggin' away and trying to find my place in the world of portraiture!

past the music shop

Another walking and drawing sketch with my Micron purple Brush Pen. I really had to keep the wash of watercolour loose to match the line. I love the originality of this kind of drawing.
