Second week of World Watercolor Month

This is week 2. I am not following the prompts. I am just drawing and painting what ever I can come up with. I am using a Stillman and Birn sketchbook for all of the ones besides the portraits. They are in a book just for that.

Elephant giclee in Lubbock

I got an email from a woman in Lubbock.  She was at the 'AT HOME' Store in Lubbock and found my elephant painting.  I was excited that it was this close to home!

Wyomimg Watercolor Society

I am excited to be accepted in the  33rd annual Wyoming National show.  The show is in Sheridan Wyoming in August.
Saddle Shop and Black Buick will be in the show. The saddle shop was poured watercolor and I didn't like it so I went back and painted it with gouache.  I am surprised it got in because of the darkness.   The Saddle Traders Shop is in Post Tx.
The old car was on the highway near Canyon TX. It was all grown up in trees and weeds. It was a beautiful old car. No telling what stories are hidden away in it!!

Basket of Tops

Love spinning tops! I loved them when I was a kid. It takes some skill to throw them and have them spin.  These are a little different than what we had to play with.  These are more colorful!
This is done with transparent watercolor

My daughter and I went to Nashville and had such a great time.  All the signs were so bright and colorful. I loved them all!  Especially this one! It is painted with gouache and will be 22x28 framed.

More of Rise and Draw

More of Rise and Draw.  I can't seem to keep up with the blog, since I am drawing so much. I forget to post the photos.  I always post on Facebook and Instagram and my blog gets left behind!
This is more of rise and draw. I still need to do a few more.  I have been doing other drawings and paintings too.

Rise and Draw online class

I haven't kept up posting the sketches each day. We get a tip and a photo each day to work from. It is very challenging. Some are ok, and some are not! I think I am learning though. 
Some of these I have found other places. Some are the ones sent out.
