I took a break from a pastel portrait that I am working on to paint the DSFDF Beach this afternoon. I separated the color of the water from the sky/reflected sky and I wish my camera could pick up the subtle color differences within each area. Sigh... That is something I will have to work on another day.

Hank is a boxer/mastiff mix that could have been named Comfort. He belongs to a friend of mine and I thought she might like a small 8x10 watercolor of Hank.

Painting Glass

These are some demos on painting glass. I just did the two cordial glasses and the jars are from before. I will cover some techniques in the workshop coming up but having good observation skills is key. Then you can decide what to edit.

Model Session

We had a great model this past session and these are the images I did from that day. There were some that worked in watercolor, some in pastel... My pastels are from the session and the watercolor was done (from photograph, later) on a card as a thank you to the model.

Demonstration images

I was asked to post some images from some demos that I did and also a painting of a barn I did. To the people that requested, hope this helps

Wig Window

I have been pretty busy with classes and doing demos and have not had anything to put up that I would like to share... That is till today, when I finally sat down to do the DSFDF challenge. I kept putting it off, not sure how to handle it, played with acrylic but in the end went back to watercolors and had fun! I would love to do this one more time to work a few bugs out, but tomorrow Karin will post a new challenge and it is time to put these last few weeks away. Just waiting for spring...
