For our optional World Watercolor Month prompt of “Favorite Color” today, I found it difficult to choose. I love color in general and I’m not sure I really have a true favorite. But, when it comes to painting, I
Beautiful birds Charlie! So glad that you had a wonderful evening last night with friends. Nice day here, mixture of yard work, attaching labels to painting, grilling a steak to share and fresh garden peas!
I’m always a bit baffled by the concept of a favorite thing. I do have favorites for a time – an obsession with a particular thing, but then something else drifts by and I have a new obsession. Sounds like your 4th was fun!
Beautiful birds, Charlie!! Sounds like you had a wonderful evening!!! i managed to work and play today and spent most of the morning talking to a friend who lives up north. We’ve had a standing Sunday morning phone chat for probably 30 plus years and those calls can go on for as long as 3 hours every Sunday. It’s a huge bright spot in my week and we cover every topic under the sun. Nothing like a good friend to spend the morning with…even if it is over the phone.
These little birds are beautiful! I never heard of these before. What a treat to see your painting. I’m going to borrow some ideas from this to re-do my Lilac-breasted Roller bird I posted for today’s WorldWatercolorGroup challenge. Wish I could have been a fly on the wall to hear your group’s singing! Sounds like fun!
Those birds are something! I’ve never heard of them before. It was a lot quieter here today. I watered some plants and painted some pears. I realized I need to get some new glasses. I can’t seem to keep within the lines!! 😂
For our optional World Watercolor Month prompt of “Quiet,” I only had time for a quick little doodle today. So I made a fast watercolor sketch of a couple of little birds snuggling in a tree. It’s a holiday here
Happy Independence Day, Charlie! We’ve been having rogue fireworks since Wednesday and I expect it will be pretty bad tonight. We’ll probably have a good view from our living room. I really hate the smell of cordite that hangs around afterward!
With a new law allowing people to buy their own fireworks for the 4th of July I’m pretty certain that our neighborhood will get rather noisy tonight. feel bad for all the critters…wild and domestic…our cats will be in hiding. Sounds like a wonderful evening, Charlie!!!!
Beautiful Charlie! Enjoy your evening with friends! We are relaxing this evening as I worked at a gallery this afternoon. We were able to open our Art in Bloom show that closed back in March a few days after it opened. I have 15 pieces hanging with works from 7 other artists. I may have landed another venue today. It was a good day but having a mask on for that long is hard. Breathing is an issue but it has to be. Happy 4th!
There is a lot of noise here. Pandemic or not, these people are going to party. I’m kind of disgusted with the whole thing because these people don’t seem to care about the possibility of killing someone with their stupidity. At least 5 ambulance calls have screamed past our house yesterday and today. I’m usually a bit more laid back about stuff but the lack of human kindness is getting to me today. In the bright side, I ate peas from the garden for dinner tonight, and then we had caramel, pecan sundaes for dessert. That makes up for a lot.
Thinking about “Playful” for today, our optional World Watercolor Month prompt, I immediately thought of a little kitten. I was going to doodle one playing with a ball of yarn and or hanging from a ball on a
My cat gets to go in the garage in the evening where she hunts mice. She’s very good at it. A week ago she brought one in. It was still alive. Joe was sleeping. The cats chased the very fast mouse into the bathroom. I went in after them. The cats lost the mouse and gave up. I had to get my long grabber and hunt the little guy down. I found him in the folds of the shower curtain. I picked him up and tossed him out. I would much prefer they hunted goldfish😀😀!
I love Windsor & Newton..and I love the sense of curiosity..it keeps us growing and seeking and hopefully learning…Thanks for your curiosity, it keeps us going here…and btw the painting is so adorable..love the kitten and the expression of the goldfish LOL 😊
When it comes to thinking about a prompt of “Texture,” the second of our optional World Watercolor Month prompts, I always think of furry and fluffy things since I like to sketch and paint animals. These more
I’m getting to see some of the fabulous work out there, but with hubby home my internet time has been less than usual. I’ll be sad to see him heading back to work, but glad to have time to go look at more artwork! There’s always gold among the dross!
Two down plus #3 started because it’s one of those paint and dry and paint and dry pieces. My friend used to keep llamas. We went to a llama farm together once to learn how to shear them. It was a lot of fun. She had a grandson who wanted to earn some extra money, so she had him shovel llama manure into bags then sell it to local gardeners. It was great fertilizer because the grain that they eat is so digested that their poop doesn’t have any weed seeds in it. That’s your fun fact for the day. Feel free to tell Philippe, because I’m sure he would want to know!😂😂😂
Oh my gosh! He made me smile! That’s what “texture” looks like. 😉 When I read the prompts earlier, this texture one really dumbfounded me. To the point I could not think of anything and wondering if I would even participate this month. I decided the evening of the 1st, that I would just do my own thing. I don’t need anymore stress in my life right now. Lol
awwwwwww, I love her (?) so much, Charlie 😍😘. She’s beautiful and charming. This watercolor month is amazing, I’ve told myself : “hey, Loan, though you could not join everyday, but that’s really fun and full of passions, diving in there as much as you can”
