New work in progress

Even though it may have started out being a snowy day here in the East, the snow broke through the clouds and gave beautiful light for starting a new painting today.

It took quite a while to get the sketch on the paper, so I was anxious to at least start getting some paint to the paper.   By mid to late afternoon I was happy to start, even though my assistant “cough-cough, Toaster” tried to get in the water.

Working with Winsor & Newton watercolors on 300 cold pressed paper.

So far I’ve used 10 colors just on these two gems and I will still go back to them!

This could take awhile…….

Meanwhile, any suggestions for a name for this painting?

Nixie getting more layers

Working on getting some more layers added to this commission piece.  Gradually adding more layers of color.  This session I used cadmium yellow, burnt sienna, raw umber, burnt sienna, French ultramarine blue, payne’s gray, raw sienna, burnt umber, indigo, cadmium orange, permanent mauve, winsor violet, and a various mixture of some of those colors.  Not in that particular order, btw, I’m just trying to remember all the colors I used today to tell you, lol. Light was great for painting today, but time to call it a day.  Have a great rest of the weekend everybody!
