I used watercolors from the tube and brushes instead of the small travel kit with the brushes that hold their own water. It didn't help much. I need to get out my color chart I made with Pomona in class so that my colors are mixed the same and also make up more to start with to have plenty and not have to mix more.
Again, good painting and sketching requires dedication and practice. I'm telling myself to get with it....
Sue is going to take a class with Anni Crouter in Michigan. Her watercolors are absolutely amazing. My son says she must live in watercolors. Here is a link to her animals, for me the horses, but look around at the other paintings ... wow! http://www.annicrouter.com/domestic%20animals.html
We went to Taos yesterday for Gene's physical therapy. Stopped in at Yu Garden to have some good Volcano Shrimp and see Amanda. She wasn't there again. She is in Albuquerque opening a new restaurant near the University of New Mexico. Maybe we can see her when we go through Albuquerque. Her place in Albuquerque will be Yu Eat.
We bought a few groceries in Taos. Some things are cheaper there and fresher by a little bit. I picked up a watermelon without even thinking it was on the list. Subconscious I guess.
Here is a little time lapse video as we neared and got into Taos.
