I finished this painting of the Watercolor Workshop March project photograph this evening. It is 1/4 sheet of 140 lb. Arches watercolor paper. This was a chance to use all those intense colors that I love. It was fun to paint. Now on to the painting project of "something shiny!" I am going to do a painting of two glass bottles with some red onions and garlic. It will be a full sheet of watercolor paper and will be a challenge because I have never painted transparent glass before. LOL!

I don't know if I would call this one "fun", Barb, but I would use the word "challenge". I love your blue pot much better than mine, but at least we both finished the project. Your cloth is good, also. I will start the shiny project this weekend while sitting at my art sale table. Should be fun to do.

Oh Susan, I would agree - this one was a challenge, too! I think it is interesting how different our paintings all are but all good in their own individual styles and characteristics. I do like to use a lot of color though:) I'll bet you never noticed that...tee hee!
