I got a gift of a small Winsor and Newton travel kit with 14 WC colours. It also has a fascinating small travel brush.
I can carry this in my purse together with a postcard sized WC paper block and paint anytime I want.! :cheering: So I did this in my pause at work. Took me around 30 min. I am quite happy with the result. :smiley6600:
All comments are welcome.

Your painting is lovely, Gita. I'm always amazed by people who can paint such nice paintings so fast. I'm incredibly slow.
The warercolor kit sounds like a great idea.

Nice work, Gita.

I have all the makings of that kit, so will add it to my tote where I carry all my graphite sketching things.  Never leave home without it!

I did do a watercolor on the plane using whatever I had on hand.  Unfortunately, I left the sketchbook on the plane!

Wow! Gita, you are speedy Gonzalez' sister for sure - doing that beautiful painting in 30 minutes. It would probably have taken me a couple of days!!!  Anyway, it is excellent.

I am doing my best to keep in touch with my art work.
Eventhough, I think all you experts would be equally fast.  :smiley6600:

This took me a bit longer - around 45 min. I am exited about trying out the wet in wet technique!

Gita,

This is fabulous.  Looks so professional!  I totally love it.

The fruit looks so juicy.  The blending of the reds is so perfectly done.

Your best work yet!
