Thinking Of Spring

  I know it's only the end of January but a person can think ahead. We have been having a warm winter  this year so my mind goes to Daffodils.   I did this watercolor rather quickly using a very loose method. I first wet the paper all over then I dropped in different yellows. After the paper dried completely I used  blues  and the yellows very wetly to form the flower. After it completely dried I used darker colors for shading.  Please enjoy this little flower who always announces that Spring is here.   Thankyou for viewing and commenting.

Yop Challenge For January

 This is for our Year of Monthly challenges for January.   The goal was to create and paint our own still life or landscape.  I decided instead of landscapes to do my own still life setup.   I used a white vase I owned, my husband's aunts silver and clementines on a white table cloth with dark bg.  I really enjoy painting silver now, and think these spoons came out beautifully.  Please take a moment to enjoy this and comment.  I really appreciate all of you, Thank You .
