Today I am painting, but will not finish a painting. I am working on this painting which I started last week with the contour drawing I posted. It requires a lot of effort and detail and will not be completed in one day. I assure you, I will continue to be painting most of the day!
This painting is 12" x 9" and is on 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper.

I prepared this still life for day 13 of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge. I am also going to use it for my intermediate watercolor class at Riverside Art Center in Wapakoneta, Ohio.
The painting is 9" x 12" and is painted on Canson 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper with Golden's QoR watercolors. I love them - the pigments are so intense and keep the intensity as they dry, unlike a lot of other watercolors.

Todays painting is a quick watercolor study because I was at the hospital today with my husband who had a heart catheterization this a.m. He did well and we were allowed to come home this evening.
This painting is 4" x 5" and is painted on printmaking paper with QoR watercolor from Golden Paints.
This little watercolor is my painting for day 10 - I know this is the 11th, but my dear husband, Rock, has been in the hospital since Tuesday, and I was not able to post this yesterday.
This is 7" x 5" and is painted on printmaking paper with QoR paints from Golden and wet-in-wet drawing with a skewer.

This project is also for the Diva's Challenge #184 - a Zentangle weekly challenge - I decided to kill 2 birds with one stone, so to speak! The challenge is to use the new tangle "ing" in a zentangle design or zentangle inspired art.
I had some trouble with "Ing" and am still not certain if I did it correctly.
I did this tangle on a piece of printmaking paper that I had left over. I did a wet-in-wet background in burnt sienna and yellow ochre using QoR watercolors from Golden and then did my tangle on top using an .03 Micron Pigma black drawing pen.
I created this painting for Day 8 in the challenge. The painting is 4" x 6" and is painted on Canson's 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper. I used the new Golden QoR watercolors - they are so rich and yummy!
