PansiesOne of my students brought these pansies in for us to paint. This is a contour drawing (continuous line) with watercolor on Arches Cover Cream in my journal sketchbook. Arches Cover is not watercolor paper, and "cream" is just that - cream colored. It is very heavy, soft paper, not meant for watercolor at all, but I like the way it takes it - the colors stay pretty bright.
The pansies look like spring, and our lilacs are about to bloom, but I'm still wearing turtlenecks and layers.
I started this post a few days ago and didn't finish and post it. I don't know why. I seem to be moving very slowly and the rest of the world is rushing by. I'll catch up. Slow isn't always a bad thing, you know.
