Back Again

The sketchbook project has me back again, working on watercolor with a more regular rhythm.  I'm not thrilled with the results, but AM thrilled with the surge of creative energy.

Here are two finished sketchbook pages using the "Writing on the Wall" theme:
Prayer Wall at Mary's House, Ephesus, Turkey
Escuela de Acordeon, Madrid
And a watercolor showing a wintry, foggy valley.  This is in progress, as a couple of edges need softening and some other contrast put in place.  But I like how it's coming along, and you should know that the colors here aren't very true.

I love all your paintings, but the wintry and foggy day is my favourite. I am a real nature girl and love ''the weather''. I especiaally love clouds!!!

Looks good! The last one in particular!

I'm hoping to finish my Sketchbook either this week or next! :)
