I have been struggling with watercolors for quite some time, but after yesterday's little talk with a friend and a short, but extremely informative article I stumbled upon this morning (apparently some people have all the same problems as I do, which makes them the best teachers), I finally figured out how to tame the beast. Well, at least partially.

I was hoping to go sketching the town today, but the wind makes it oh so uncomfortable to sit outside. Sun doesn't help much. So I am staying in and working with what I have. Although I would love to go and unleash my new understanding of color onto the world outside.


  1. Nice! I like the shadowing of the boxes and the pot of the jade plant (never been able to keep one of those alive!).

    I'm hoping Saturday's weather holds – so I can go out too!

  2. Thanks, Jen! Funny - this green guy doesn't give me much trouble, I just forgot about it and it thrives!
