Copenhagen 2 and a few other goodies

    Can't believe it is almost the end of March already. Still wintery in the northeast but promises of Spring are showing up here and there. I went outside watercolor sketching in NYC the other day with my stool in the sunshine but after about an hour there was a major weather shift and that. I was glad I journeyed out  as you can't improve if you don't do take the risk and get started.
   I did want to share a few things with you besides this painting. I am taking an online drawing class with Koosje Koene  called  Just Draw It . It is amazing what you can learn inside the privacy of your home with todays technology. Loving it ! It is a five week course and I am presently on week two. Her  lesson this week started with the phrase " It's all about practicing, I can't emphasize that enough " sound familiar ? Hahah ! I don't know about you but I chuckled.
  I also purchased a new paintbox and I look forward to using it as soon as the weather gets better. I purchased it online from Barry Herniman an English watercolor painter . It is sturdy and folds up , perfect for a plein air watercolor painter. Here is the link if you are interested in seeing it and watching the short video. Clover Leaf Paintbox
    Here is todays watercolor. I hope you enjoy it !

   This painting is 11" x15 " unframed and is not yet available as I would like to finish the series first before I let any of them go to a new home. However if you would like it just let me know and I will save it for you.  Enjoy this wonderful day and paint with joy in your heart. See you next time.
