Daily Art -- Pecan Tree and Shed

Pecan Tree and Shed
8 1/2" x 11"
Conte hard pastel on dark blue Canson Mi-Tientes pastel paper, smooth side.

I also got up at 3:30 in the morning last night and painted this from the WDE July 10-12-09 reference posted by SAndypp. WDE is Weekend Drawing Event on WetCanvas.com which is full of great references, good forums, stimulation and challenges with cool references. I am hosting this next weekend's WDE and will post 16 of my latest good photos plus use the reference from my Oil Pastel Society 2009 Member Show entry as the Invitation photo -- which means you're invited to paint from that too, it counts.

Bondi Beach, Australia
5" x 7"
Mont Marte watercolor pencils on Canson "Biggie Junior" 90lb cold press watercolor paper.
The challenge with the WDE was to do something while painting that reminds you of the country the references are from, so naturally I used the Australian watercolor pencils to paint the Australian beach in a storm! Thanks Again, Lauren -- I found your Cat and Wombat paintings in my unpacking and took them out, should be getting back to them soon.

Don't know if it's the black background in my friends page or the smaller size, but these look much better thru my LJ than on wetcanvas. Great colors in the shed painting...hey, you have graffiti'd your initials on the fence, LOL. Looks great there. Would the landlord be upset if you did that IRL?

On another note, I've been looking for your WDE invitation...

Thank you! I think it might be the black, though the size helps too. I want to do that one again in another medium sometime, love the reference. Thanks!
