the mystery of painting water so that it looks like water
Odin awaits the return of Muninn
I think I’ll be dipping back into my lake vacation for a while.
Cleaning out my watercolor pans and palette, and listening to fireworks going off all around town from the sounds of it. I’m tired, but there will be no point in trying to sleep for a couple hours yet!
I didn’t actually do any art this day. I was travelling, and had all my supplies packed away. Then visiting family, and did not want to take away from any of that time. Here’s a little gallery of the postcard-sized watercolors (and inks) I did over the past week.
Last day on the lake, admiring the clouds and trying to figure out how to paint water
from a photo featuring a tiny chipmunk on top of one of the rocks, but I didn’t see it when I referred to the photo on my phone. I am really enjoying the watercolors. That yellow is a bit much, tho.
