Plant acrylic

Underlayment and pencil-up

Mostly painted

Since I couldn’t get to the watercolor board for my next piece (it was in my flat file cabinet and blocked by the panels of a dry sauna my husband bought but not yet assembled), I had to use what I already had out and available in the studio.  Between the cold weather and unseasonable snows, I am tired of waiting for spring.  I decided to make some of my own green with the acrylics.  It’s only a little painting at 10×8, so it didn’t take long and I’m pretty happy with it.

And an April Fool’s Day joke from Mother Nature  –  1-3 inches of snow predicted for this evening.  Fortunately it has been warm enough that it will mostly stick on the grass and melt off of the roads.  Next up on the table is a pen/watercolor of the Central Fire Station in Boise Idaho.  (I did finally get into the flat files for the board.  My husband will soon be in sauna heaven.)

Something different

Circles

My eyes and mind needed a break from the ink linework and here it is.  I decided to do something that required little conscious thought and was more free form.  I started with drawing the larger circles and went down from there until the page was filled.  (Do you know hard it is to draw and then paint little circles?  LOL)

Once I decided on the color scheme, I again started with the larger circles.  I tried to just go with the flow and not think about much of anything.  It turned out to be a kind of a positive/negative space exercise only with colors and circles.  I am actually rather pleased with the result and have listed it in my etsy store.
