Snippet Sunday

A week gone, and I did not write a single word on my manuscript. Ah well, there is always next week.

I did a couple of watercolor paintings this time around:


First a value study, using only one color...well, the darkest area has a hint of a neutral shade to deepen it:

Then a copy of a painting. I really need to work on nailing colors. The original had much richer colors:

And last, a monochrome of Sancerre, where we used to live in France, done in yellows and then overlaid with touches of blue to create green.  Fun experiment:

All of these are **gorgeous**--time well spent. I can't pick a favorite as they're so different, one from the next, but beautiful.

Great pictures! I find myself most drawn to the Sancerre scape. There's something very alive about it. The blue overlay is, I think, what creates the mystical 3-D effect. It seems as if some force, not quite definable nor entirely visible, moves across the countryside.
