Some quick watercolors from yesterday. The middle one was tricky, I got a new sketchbook about a month ago and hadn't really worked a lot in it until yesterday. The paper repels water, it's really hard to work on, so I've had to figure out how to paint without washes, and with dilluting the paint as little as possible. I also just started a portrait of my sister in oil and should be done with that soon too.
I couldn't believe how hot out it was today, like in the mid 80's. Not that I want to be ridiculously freezing, but it isn't even snowing in Minnesota, which is the only reason I'm going there.
I saw The Queen today and it was really good, if that's your sort of thing. I'm also going to look forward to Curse of the Golden Flower, if for no other reason than it looks very pretty and probably epic, though there seem to be a lot of push up bras.
And this is probably my last post of the year. This year has been insane. I wouldn't want it any other way.
