Artsomofo first day!

Crossposted from artsomofo --

I tried to post these at about eleven PM my time but LJ was down for maintenance. Now that it's up again, here they are -- four watercolors, two of them painted for my granddaughter at her request. We watched Walking with Cavemen and Whitetip's Journey together and painted, which I think was a great kickoff.


Autumn River Scene
6" x 9" Daniel Smith watercolor sticks used wet on Canson Biggie Junior watercolor paper.


Blue Bamboo, Three Dragonflies in Prussian Blue monochrome Marie's Transparent watercolor, same paper. Sascha loved this one and is convinced they are mommy and babies, not just three of them distanced.


Playground with Big Tree in Daniel Smith watercolor sticks, Sascha asked me to "Draw a slide" and then draw a big tree to shade the slide and draw her on the slide. So I tried for a simple children's book illustration style and am very happy with the results.


Orca Rider in Marie's Transparent Watercolors. "Paint me a whale" and "Can I ride the whale?" -- Of course she can ride the whale. From memory and imagination, I don't think I got the orca markings right but I did get the gist of it.

So this is my first day's art. Still need to do today's art for the second but may do that after I get up.
