I think I got tired of working on the watercolor. So I put it away for a day or two so I can look at it and get inspired again with fresh eyes.
In the meantime, I started a little pastel. This is a coastal scene - boats - water - something I hardly ever do! I am such a landlubber, but I do love looking at the sea too. West Coasters will recognize this (maybe). We are on a ferry that is taking us over to Catalina Island. It is still taking me a while to get back into the groove with pastel. I feel like I'm mincing around, starting very light until I find my way.
Welcome to my art blog! This is where I share my explorations and learning experiences in pastel, watercolor and oil painting. I have had this blog for about six or more years. I am currently entering many national and regional juried art shows. I have a website and sell my work from there as well. I started a group called Reno Tahoe Plein Air Painters a year ago and it has grown to about 40 active painters! Each year brings new challenges and exciting opportunities. I have made many friends among other art bloggers and enjoy visiting their blogs. I hope you enjoy your visit here, and click on the links to my website and the plein air painters to see more!
