Familiar subject

Back to doing some flowers in a new sketchbook that is filled with Kilimanjaro 140lb CP watercolor paper....I'm a bit unfamiliar with it, but trying to get a handle on it...experimentation..the word of 2016!

Portrait 2

Here is another from my Self portrait project...this one quite appropriate for the weather! I might start another themed journal like this one is fun to work towards a goal and to fill up those blank sketchbooks that are filling up my studio, because I can't seem to stop myself from buying them any time I see them! Large, small, thick, thin, square, hard bound, fancy, get my drift...anyone else have this obsession?

Not a self portrait, but I will post another one next week...this is a morning sketch from my sketchbook using hooker's green...a small one, just 5" x 5".

Not a watercolor today (although the under painting is wc)...but a color pencil study I did last year, when during the month of January I did a self portrait every day....simply as a challenge for myself...I varied the techniques and media used...all in one handy sketchbook...I'll post some more soon...
