Hunting for 609

A new Scavenger Hunt already.

Mary and I sketched with watercolors at the kitchen table.  It was a good time, but realize I need to just practice some techniques and strokes to figure out how to keep a fresh look to watercolor.  At least I did something and it was fun to visit and "play" with Mary.

 Number 1, Pear - a pair of pears actually.  Watercolor in the watercolor sketchbook.  The water buckles this watercolor paper more than I would expect since it is a Canson Watercolor Sketchbook. 

Mary's sketch, in her multi-media sketchbook also Canson.  Paper very similar.

jmfletch, hi there! Thanks for checking our sketches out. It was a good outing.

Joan Tavolott said...

Nice watercolor sketches by both of you!

Jo Castillo said...

Hi, Joan. You always inspire me to try watercolor. We had a good time, thanks.

Lou said...

Those are fun watercolors. Reminds me playing in the watercolors with you in Angel Fire.

Jo Castillo said...

Hi, Lou, thank you so much. We did have fun in Angel Fire. Looking forward to doing that again.

nice shading on the pears :) watercolour sketchbook are bad for buckling, the really thick ones are ok, but of course not cheap

Jennifer Rose, we may get out the good stuff today. It does make a difference. But then, I won't have an excuse for my lack of practice.
