Watercolor studies

Daffodils from Trader Joe's on Khadi handmade watercolor paper

Another paper that is 100% cotton handmade. It has the feel of painting on material, great fun.
While waiting for spring I purchased my yearly daffodils from Trader Joe's, they come
from Ireland.
It is Saturday morning and having coffee, today will be another painting day.  First, must pick up my painting that was in
a show and happy to say it received a merit award.  So once again wishing all a happy Saturday.


This is my first study using the Saunders rough paper.  I love it, and makes painting in w/c so much easier for me.

Yesterday, my friend Sue and I braved the semi cold weather and painted in Stony Brook.
It was wonderful being outdoors. 

I will finish this study at home ore maybe not.  I have been experimenting with
different w/c papers.  This is a Saunders 140lb. rough.  Love it.
