I then went into my art room and sprayed my watercolors in the palette and decided to try to paint a pear, but first as a warm-up, I decided to add some color to my heron sketch.
|I think he is a little too purple and his legs are a bit too orange, but I rather like him anyway.|
Then I began on the pear. I know that my biggest problem with watercolor is waiting for paint to dry and this project was no different. I am getting a bit more patient, though. I began with a bit of purple on the left for the darkest area and then glazed on yellows followed by blues. At the end I added a bit of reddish orange and then spattered it through a spatter screen. For the background I used several different oranges and reds and then covered the top with scrunched up waxed paper.
While I was working on the pear, Miss P worked on a drawing of three girls and then began to add some color. She didn't have time to finish, but here is her work in progress.
I have Zoë and her big sister, Katie, here with me. They stayed overnight and will probably be up any time now. I am going to try to have just a bit of quiet time this morning with my coffee. I hope you are having a great day.
