Painting Postcards with Barbara

 I am at it again only this time with postcards and my sister Barbara.  She is drawing and I am drawing/painting.  I painting a lot of just backgrounds about a year ago and the giraffes were reverse painted with Holbein Shadow green over the yellow.

My african violets were hard because I, once again, lost my place in the painting of the drawing.  I really need to start doing value studies.

Fun Exercise

I painted this yesterday and used Aliz Crimson and Imperial purple for the whole painting.  Oops. I used  Cerealean for the water.  Plastic wrap for the texture.  A circle template and magic eraser for the moon.

A Rose By Any Other Name

I was thinking of my friend Cia this morning and decided to paint her a rose.  Cia has passed on but she will never be forgotten.  No one painted a rose like Cia Price.

This is a watercolor 4 x 6" and was painted with Alizerin Crimson, Cad red light and Aureolin yellow.
