Getting back in the swing of things after the trip to Las Vegas.

This lighthouse came out pretty well, but I saw needs for tweaking as soon as I posted it.


I did this Desert Poppy for my friend who hosted me in Las Vegas.


Tried a line and wash on the wrong kind of paper and used too much water!  Awful shadows so cut off the bottom of the watering can.


I also did a lot of sketching while there.  I will post those in the pencil section.

Thanks, Sharon, Fi, and Val.

So many craft stores in Vegas.  I bought lots of new watercolor and mixed media (for line and wash) paper.

Used Strathmore 400 series Mixed Media (140lb) for the poppy and lighthouse.  Was on sale at Michael's!
