Day 74- Blue

Day 74
Title: Blue
Medium: Watercolor on Cardstock
Size: 8.5x11
Inspiration: Watching TV felt like doodling so I grabbed a piece of card stock and started doing a blue wash. Card stock is a bit different then watercolor paper in that once you put the color down it cannot be easily moved. I started doing the tree with a big brush and then moved to a smaller line brush for the branches, the birds, and the swing. I imaging this to be somewhere near a beach so while swinging you can hear the crashing of the waves and watch the sun set over the horizon.

Days 34-67

Day 67
Title: Peacock- Pavao (Work in Progress)
Medium: Oils on stretched Canvas
Size: 19.5x23.5
Inspiration: Peacock on a farm that Ali and I went horseback riding at. There was another step between this one and the last one that I forgot to take a picture of.

Days 34-66
I was in a bit of a funk. Ali was out here so I was having too much fun with her to paint. Then she left and I was a bit sad so I didnt feel like doing anything. Then it was 4th of July and I was quite busy and then a really good friend of mine moved away so I feel into my funk again. I have had no motivation or inspiration to paint. It felt like my creative juices dried up. I just got back to this painting 2 days ago. I didnt post because I didnt feel like it at the time. I was/ am a bit ashamed at my lack of painting. Hopefully things will get better as I recover from my funk and complete this painting. I have 13 days to complete 2 comissions.
This should be intresting. :/
