Cherry Picking Time Poured Watercolor

This is a poured watercolor piece. It's 16"x20".
 Here are a few in process photos. 
I didn't photograph the first several steps (Sorry!)
Finished piece!

I masked out all of the white areas. 
Poured liquid watercolor: red, yellow and blue.
Mingled it on the paper.
The first photo below is first pour and second masking layer
The second photo is after 4 repeats

Below: Ready for the reveal. Scary and exciting at the same time Oh my,  I was super excited!
But, the colors are a little flat in places and the cherries are really flat.

So now I need to add a few glazing layers, soften the highlights, and bump up the darks.
I saved the tablecloth and the stems to just paint directly.They are not poured.

Challenge 30 in 30 Days 4 and 5 - "Teapot" and "Wayne's Corvette"

Hmm! Not sure what happened to Day 4 and 5.
Maybe, it was because it was a Monday and
then a day at the doctor's office
Both of these were painted in December
Here's a little teapot. 5"x7" watercolor

And for Day 5, I cheated a bit. This was a commission that
I painted for a customer as a Christmas gift for her husband.
"Wayne's Corvette"

This is part of Leslie Saeta's 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge.

30 in 30 Challenge Day 3 - Hat People -"Lorie"

I saw "Lorie" at a craft show.
When I saw her hat (not cowboy) and her sweet smile
I knew I wanted to paint her. I needed to catch just the right light,
so we stepped to the door which just happily
happened to be red. YeeHaw! And her red plaid shirt, perfect!!!

This is day 3 of the 30 paintings in 30 days hosted by Leslie Saeta.
Watercolor -11"x15" on Arches paper.
Here's a little glimpse at my W.I.P. (work in progress)

30 in 30 Hat People - Tom Orsak

"Tom Orsak" is an artist and a friend.
Tom is a plein air artist and I love the hat he wears
when he is painting outside.
 I was delighted when he agreed to let me paint his portrait.
He and his wife, Jeane live in Harriet, Texas near San Angelo.
This is day 2 of the 30 paintings in 30 days hosted by Leslie Saeta.

6. Get organized 7. Don't make a resolution

It has been awhile since I participated in Leslie Saeta's
30 Paintings in 30 Days, but it's time to do it again!!!
She suggested to choose a theme or subject.
so I am thinking...
I am working on a series - "Hat People" (will post later)
and for Christmas, hubby and I went to San Antonio.
We loved the Mission Trail. So, I am also painting missions.
This is "Mission Concepcion"
