Painting and a Peek

Made some headway on this watercolor painting yesterday. Slowly added in the darks so I don't go crazy and ruin it.  Taking photographs in between painting sessions helps me see where I'm going with it.  It's as if I'm stepping away from the work and squinting at it to see where to go next.  I like it!  If I can keep a light hand on it we should be fine.  I'd like to avoid disaster if it's at all possible.

Oh, by the way, here's a little peek at the finished thing.  I can't say any more about it except that it's knitted and it's this color that you see.  We'll discuss at a later date.  There's too much to say and I have to stop now before I shoot my mouth off.  The time will come and we'll dish, but not until I say so.

Yeah, I like suspense, too.


  1. Butterfly is coming on nicely - and the turquoisey knitted thing? Its a nice colour :lol:

  2. Yes, to both comments Pat! ;-)!!

  3. Beautiful painting! My hats off to those who can paint in watercolor - a medium I find incredibly difficult.

  4. Thanks Donna. Believe me, I'm winging it with watercolor, but doing better with pointers from my fabulous commenters here in blog world!
