Today's Sketches and A WC Begun

While watching tennis and then baseball yesterday, I took my sketchbooks into the living room and busied myself by drawing a variety of fruit,

a book I am reading, 

my exercise purchase (tube) and the day's food diary,

And then after a rather scathing comment that rather hurt although I am sure it was warranted,  I attempted a watercolor wash. 

I don't know what it will become, but I am going to try to keep it loose and not overwork it. So far I like it but think I need to add some light grayish bits into the clouds to better shape them.

I am meeting a new friend at the life drawing class this morning where I believe we have a new model. I believe it is now a female. Afterward I have a few errands to run before coming home to more Wimbledon and the beginning of a larger watercolor. A friend sent me a link to a video of an ink and wash that was fun to watch and gave me the itch to do a larger. The sky above is on a postcard sized piece of watercolor paper.

I hope you are doing well and that you are finding time to be creative today.



  1. Oh, put a bit of violet into those clouds! that will be great.

  2. such a beautiful sky, I can't wait to see what comes next.I never grow tired of painting sky, have a wonderful day,

  3. I love the delicate colors in your sky. Please post your WIP. OMG! Is it ever hot out today -- and no rain in sight. Our poor gardens!

  4. I love the way the pink is under your dancing cloud!
