DAY 26 AND 27

 watercolor 6 x 6 inches

 I didn't post this yesterday, as the puplish color was all wrong the first time I painted it.  Then I put some gouache on it which was worse. This morning, I managed to take most of the gouache off which took a whole lot longer than it did to paint it, and what is left is what it is.

watercolor  4.5 x 7 inches

 It was a joy to paint this one, after spending what seemed half the morning fixing the previous one.  We had about  a foot of new snow and it was 9 degrees C this morning. These are the trees out a north facing window.

The first painting looks really good on the computer. You are too hard on yourself.

Thank you Polly. I appreciate that. I guess even if it isn't what I was trying for, it is OK.

Hi Carole,
I have just discovered your blog. I just love the aspect you have chosen for the pin-cushion. Beautifully done!
