It's here!! Summer break has officially started!! Woo-hoo!! Now we have 9 weeks off to play and garden and paint! :)
While the boys were taking their finals last week and I was waiting for them to finish, I painted in the car again. (It really isn't as messy sounding as you might think!)
I painted some more "Ladies in Hats" and now have four color watercolor portraits and one watercolor silhouette completed for the series. They are now in My Etsy . They are also on my website: Pear Tree Primitives . The slideshow below gives you a peek at them.
All year long I've been adding to a list of things I want to try during the summer. (Keeps me motivated during the school year!) Here are a few things on that list:
Dry Brush Watercolor Technique.......this has a really neat look to it.
Paint a Pastoral Setting Scene
Paint a Landscape
Work in Oils again.....I haven't done this in a few years and want to really figure this out for future portraits.
That should keep me busy for awhile! Are you a list person? Do you have things you want to try this summer or someday? I'd love to hear about them!
