Under the African Sky
My daughter recently went on a 19 Day
wonderful trip to Africa.
Since she is so like her mother in many ways
she has a gazillion pictures to share with us.
This picture was in the first batch she shared.
I knew the minute I saw it I wanted to paint it and probably in watercolors .
So today I drug all of my watercolor pencils and brushes out to the deck to paint.
As I quickly tried to do the painting I started remembering all the things about watercolors I had forgotten.
Like don't erase on watercolor paper..it shows when you try to paint...... and don't paint outside on a windy day....it dries too fast.....and don't try to do it quickly. No matter how many other things you have to do that day :0(
So I'm calling this one my practice piece for the Masterpiece that will get done later :0)
Linking to ....
Now I'm off to try real hard to get those other jobs done today...maybe!
