Photo for Friday - Time for a Small Watercolor Painting

Winter Cardinal ©2011 Dora Sislian Themelis
8x10 Watercolor on Arches paper
No time to yap, I have shopping to do! No time to paint either, but I did find twenty minutes to paint this holiday type of still life. I was determined to get something, anything on paper this week. Next week is another story.

Do you see my little friends in this painting? I'm talking about my friends the apple and the beach shell. Just had to pop them in someplace here.

Happy shopping time now!


  1. beautiful, twenty minutes , wow!

  2. Thanks Laurie! I try to use less water and more color, and work around the painting to let other areas dry. It's been working!

  3. lovely painting, it has a very festive feel xx

  4. I love this, Dora! The red and green really made a beautiful setting for your apple and shell.

  5. Just beautiful...I only wish I could do a painting in 20 minutes that looked like yours.
