    It is beautiful. It would be interesting to see it with the water done wet on wet.

    I'm having fun blending colors. I was glad to learn the 3 techniques today as that will give me more control over my brush.

    This is my first experience with water colors and am looking forward to playing with tine, tone, and shades. My biggest challenge is getting the water amount right as I seem to be putting in too much and my paint is very runny. I am impressed and overwhelmed with the pictures posted to this group.

    I think I saw both what it was and the shapes and lines depending on what part I was drawing. It didn't seem any more difficult than drawing right-side up but that is still difficult for me. IMG_7979

    I wondered that also about moving targets. Maybe after practicing it on still objects one will naturally use without the actual measuring so it will be helpful on things moving.

    I've been having trouble with proportion and I think this will be really helpful in drawing things proportionally.  It is 17 degrees - too cold for me to go out and sketch so I tried sketching this strangely shaped cactus that is here in the house. IMG_7888 copy

    I had problems connecting the beginning and the end of the drawing. It is hard not to focus on doing it 'right' but I do think it helps you focus on the subject. My best attempt was the Bird of Paradise. IMG_7382

    This spring I planted Salvia Victoria Blue and Salvia Red Hot Sally. Although both are salvia the do not look much alike. I did my comparison between the two and found even more differences than I noticed through casual observation. I'm still unsure how they can both be called Salvia other than that they both seem to be in the mint family.IMG_7308 I don't have a system yet for recording drawing, writing and numerical data so they are organized for comparison.

    I went on my screened back porch. I sit there most days but really observed today. The signs of fall are all around. It was very relaxing to just observe and put all other things out of my mind. Sketching some of the things I observed is something I haven't done before.

    I'm still a bit frustrated that my drawings don't look exactly like I would like them to look. I certainly can see how the shading could work just am not quite there.

    In drawing from the photo I don't need to worry about my subject moving. To me at this point most challenging is getting the proportions correct. I always feel my drawing is a little off. By drawing the bird I become very aware of its shape and shading. There are so many things about drawing that increase your awareness and would otherwise go unnoticed,

    1. This was a gift from someone who knows I like nature. 2. I want to incorporate drawing with written comments. 3. I would hope as I get started my style will become unequally my own.
