Dreamscape


I did this watercolor for The Rookie Painter Challenge. I tried to do it in the style of my favorite watercolorists Belinda Del Pesco. I have a lot to learn. When I finished it the blanket reminded me of waves and I thought that that was appropriate for the restless nights of my sleeping on some days.

Extra, Extra Lemons Please

I painted this watercolor for the Paint and Draw Together Challenge. The title comes from my husband who always makes this request when we go out to eat. He loves lemons with his ice tea and one wedge just isn't going to do it, especially with refills!

An Apple Tribute

Last week I went to pick the apples off my tree in my backyard only to discover that they had already been plucked and were nowhere to be seen! I suspect a squirrel, maybe a whole clan of squirrels. Oh well, they have to eat too and they can't go to the grocery store like I can. So when I saw this challenge on the Paint and Draw Together blog I knew I wanted to participate.

This is a colored pencil sketch of my Father-in-Law who passed away this Spring. We will miss his positive attitude this Thanksgiving as we all gather together with my husband's family. He would be happy to know that his Bruins are doing so well this year.
The second one was achieved by wetting and blending the pencils.
