    #worldwatercolormonth #angelafehrtutorials Following Angela\'s example, I started with no plan except that I knew I would make a landscape. The sepia diagonals were joined with new gamboge and violet patches. Soon it was clear I had a mountain meadow in early summer. On hotpress watercolor block. Other colors used are French ultramarine blue and sap green. 071720 Spontaneous071720 Spontaneous

    #worldwatercolormonth Day 15 Forgotten. I\'m told umbrellas are the item most often left behind at museums. This image depicts an outdoor cafe, with a sad, blue umbrella, shedding a few tears out of loneliness. I painted this over top another drawing, hence the random pink lines in the background. 071520 forgotten

    #worldwatercolormonth Day 10 Fast. I was thinking about Angela Fehr\'s definition of working fast when I painted this. In reality, I was unable to work as swiftly and confidently as I wanted do.

Mostly Paynes gray, burnt sienna and cerulean blue, with a little transparent orange, lemon yellow and Thalo blue thrown into the mix. 071020Fast

    Day 3 #worldwatercolor month. Playful. I took a cue from Angela Fehr and scribbled a white crayon across the paper before starting to paint. That gave me the frothy water for these two playful dolphins and their toys. Mixed media, wax, micron pen, cerulean blue, thalo blue, Ultramarine blue, burnt sienna and a little red and yellow paint on Strathmore watercolor travel journal. 070320a Playful
