Another piece from my archives (which are fast dwindling! LOL). I was playing with wet into wet here and working to loosen edges while retaining some vibrancy ... A quick work and some interesting effects.
I returned home late last night and began on some homework from an online class with Virgil Carter (www.wetcanvas.com) - in the watercolor learning channel. Virgil is teaching how to create loose, juicy landscapes and I'm interested in learning some additional approaches to a subject I love. By the time I got home and did a few quick homework pieces, there was little time for a series painting ... hopefully this weekend!
Charles has his jam on Sunday and the rendering of fruit into preserves, jams, dried pieces, and more has begun. I picked several quarts of blueberries form our shrubs late last night, and more fruit awaits me. The figs are just about to come in, and my dear husband has found my favorite fruit of all -- persimmons. The kitchen counters are weighed down with 'get done's!' LOL With only 3 days before having to return to work and company coming on Sunday, it's going to be another chore-filled weekend -
We've had thunderstorms around us yesterday, but no more rain .. still, the forecast is for potential rain and we have our fingers crossed.
Hope you have a great weekend!

Playing Loose with Roses
