Tuesday was a plein air day for me. I used my Traveling Monet easel and painted these peonie don't know the correct spelling. Loved every minute of being outdoors.

I know that more tones are needed. Posting what I painted is in a way keeping a journal.

  5. Joan, you did a fabulous job on these. I have been studying the master flower painters this week while bedridden with that darn bug, and this is reminiscent of their work. Beautiful!
    many hugs....

  6. Nancy, thank you. I am sorry to hear you are still bedridden. Once those bugs hit, they are very hard to shake off. Feel better soon.

  9. Your floral studies in watercolor are exquisite. I wish I would spend more time with small sketchbook studies.
    Congratulations on the plein air days of painting. I attempted that last Saturday, everything was so green here.
    I should take a lesson from you in those beautiful florals.
