Yesterday we had a lovely afternoon back in the dang emergency room. I ruptured an ovarian cyst and had a pretty unpleasant ultrasound, but I’m mostly feeling better now.
And here I thought I was done with ol’ wandy.
Here’s Carissa, watercolor on 7×10 watercolor paper.
Here’s Momiji, ink on 9×12 watercolor paper.
So I do a lot of watercolors, right? And there’s this thing I do with the stack of plastic, 10-well palettes that I use.
I use them all, and I can’t bring myself to wash out that last little bit of whatever color. So I can’t put more paint down to use because it would get contaminated. I have to shuffle through the deck of eleven plastic circles at least twice to find the one or two that I’m willing to betray.
Today’s a record, though. I’m about to go wash four palettes.
Here’s The Blizzard of the World, watercolor and India ink on four 6×6 watercolor papers.
I’m pretty stoked that I’m going to be off on Saturdays now. I only worked a couple hours anyway.
Here’s Neon Subway, acrylic ink on 8×10 watercolor paper.
I really like this one. I used two kinds of sponges and every green watercolor I have.
Here’s Mechanical Splendor, watercolor and India ink on 4×6 watercolor paper.
I feel like #paintingaday has been just the thing to get me back into posting.
Now to #commentaday to catch up on my reading…
We went to the state fair today and got our caricature drawn. The artist gave me some advice: get a tablet and go digital.
I don’t know.
How far can I trust a guy who gave me eyebrows two years in a row when I didn’t put any on?
I’ll show y’all the caricature once we get it framed up.
Here’s Blue Murder, India ink and watercolor on 7×10 watercolor paper.
