What I Am Working On

After searching for weeks for the Great Dane that I rescued and then lost I haven’t felt like doing anything. Then I had three teeth pulled. So I have¬†just been hanging around the house looking and feeling like Frankenstein’s dog.

Today I decided to play around with some watercolors, inspired by the book, Atmospheric Watercolours by Jean Haines. This book is beautiful. Loads of gorgeous dreamy somewhat abstract pictures to learn great techniques from.  I am crazy about the chicken on the front cover but I would add some other colors I think as it looks too much like blood. Like a chicken that has just been murdered.

I still need to do some more work on it. Why is it a blue horse you ask? Just is. And no those aren’t tears coming out of his eyes. Supposed to be part of the mane. Yep more work. Hope you are all well, I missed everyone.
