Shaking up the Week-Friday Photos and More

After I posted to this blog on Wednesday I decided to try to upload these photos once more before I hung it up.  Voila!  One of the photos of the painting I did popped up.  Go figure.  The second wouldn't upload again.  Maybe by the end of this post it will work.  So I'm writing this Friday Photos post to take advantage of the uploading.

Can you tell I'm painting on the dining room table?  Yes, that's been the spot for the 20 minutes paintings.  The light is good from the large window and casts great shadows on the subjects.  And it's close to the kitchen!  I've been getting to the painting late in the afternoon which cuts into cooking time.  People around here need to eat!

The studio in the basement is okay, but the hydrangea painting is down there and I just don't want to look at it for a while.  My large watercolor palette is there too, but I'm having too much fun with the travel set, even though it's supposed to be for painting on the go.  Good thing I purchased plenty of half pans of Windsor & Newton paints on sale because I'm going to run out soon.  The large palette is filled with the MaimeriBlu paints.  Something about the colors with those paints, but if I really should use them.  Next time.

  1. Looking good Dora!
    I see we have the same WC travel set.

  2. Looks ab fab, Dora!
    Painting at the table agrees with you!

  3. Painting - etc - I thought that was what the dining room table was for.

  4. Hi Dora,

    Love this! Has such a vitality and freshness to it. Great colors.

  5. Thanks for the great comments all! I thought I posted a comment couple days ago but doesn't seem to be here, oops!

    I just love the colors in that W&N travel set. They just do what I need them to do! And that dining room table is seeing a lot of action these days, LOL!
