Painting again

Through all my recent ups and downs, the one thing that has been pushing its way back into wakefulness is my desire to paint. I love watercolors and am settling into working with them. I've been working with WC pencils and traditional paints. I like working with miniatures, usually nothing bigger than postcard size. Here is a watercolor I finished of my mom tonight. I expect to have many more to share soon.

A wonderful watercolor; I really like the depth created by the shadow; watercolor pencils are a god-send!!

This is beautifully done, Annie. I love the luminous quality this portrait has. I'll have to experiment with the pencils. I did a bit of messing with a water brush yesterday and it was a lot of fun.

Enjoy every minute of your day; have a happy one!
