watercolor 6 x 9 inches
I spent longer than usual on this painting than I do on most of what I post here. This is where I've posted my small pieces and sketches. Any thing that take more than about an hour, I put on my other blog.
For the first time in a while I've been posting here everyday and to give myself some help in continuing, I signed up for a challenge to do 30 paintings in January on Leslie Saeta's blog, joining what is now over a hundred other painters, to do the same. These are mostly oil painters that are doing more than sketches. What one calls a painting might not be what I've been doing here.
So today, I decided to do something more than a sketch or small study.
A friend gave me the bamboo box for Christmas and the pears came from another friend in the mail yesterday from Eastern Washington. I took the pears to the studio in the box to set up a still life and they looked pretty cool in the box, so tried something a little different.
