California Coast Santa Barbara

Ok, today I am going to post this long format painting from my computer to see if it makes a difference in eating up my side bar.
This watercolor was also done with the same 2 " flat brush. I am looking forward to spending more time with it and also using it to work my way up to 1/2 and whole sheets. That's my goal I will have to keep you posted as to how it is working out. In the meantime enjoy this one !

Yosemite National Park

      Hi all, just back from my watercolor workshop. It was a wonderful and a fabulous refresher for me. I just love painting for a weekend with like minded artists. Love it ! Love it !
      This one was painted in a longer skinnier format that I usually paint in and with a 2" flat brush. It was fun once I got used to this huge brush. I threw out quite a few before this one. I am happy with it and am looking forward to continued " bonding with this 2"flat " It definitely helps one stay loose. 
        I am also trying to post from my iPad . A new adventure to say the least. Enjoy and I 'll see you back here next time.

South Street Seaport Sketching With Urban Sketchers NYC

Continuing with the collage challenge, here is a collage of sketches I did with a Ultra fine Sharpie and my homemade watercolor travel kit made out of an Altoid tin. I was able to sketch with the Urban Sketchers NYC on Saturday morning. I was only able to stay for the morning session but so enjoyed my time with them and look forward to joining them again in the future. They are a fun  welcoming group of artist  to sketch with.  Enjoy this collage and I will see you next time .

How can you serve someone today ?
    Ok, change of pace again back to watercolor paintings . I do hope you have enjoyed seeing my stick , ink and watercolor sketches and are looking forward to seeing more of them in the future.
    My inspiration for todays watercolor was from my recent painting trip to Paris. Waiters, waiters, waiters everywhere. Just loved how they all seem to pop out of the busyness in their crisp white and black outfits.  Here is a thought for today , these waiters were busy serving customers, however  we are all in positions to serve someone in our circles with a smile, a kind word of encouragement , a deed , a phone call , cup of coffee , a written note...The possibilities are endless. Won't you take a few minutes today and serve someone around you.

     Here is the link for this painting on my website   Looking forward to seeing you all next time. Have a great day !
