Just a little glimpse of a sketchbook painting and some lettering I did on some clear plastic that I photographed so the letters cast the "Spring" shadow on my paper. This was another Kilimanjaro paper experiment.

Delphinium Dreams

New studio work...Delphinium inspiration...this was done on a square block of Fluid wc paper. It has different handling properties compared to the papers I am used to...but nonetheless a really nice surface to work on.

Go (ld) fish

A wee little fishy to brighten up a Monday morning with some warm orange colors.

Sketchbook blooms

This 9x12 sketchbook bouquet was another Kilimanjaro paper experiment.  After a few of these I was getting the hang of the new to me watercolor paper.  Bright white and a nice textured surface...always fun to give something new a try..although tried and true is comforting we sometimes have to push ourselves to learn.

Strong light
