A Christmas present from a friend. She said it fell out of Santa's bag at her place. Whats up with this, Santa?
It includes pre-sketched pictures, basic watercolors, and a nice little watercolor brush. Too bad the paper is "regular" instead of watercolor, but no mind. Oh... and thank God it also includes small pictures of Watercolors by Dennis Pendleton for reference. That helps A LOT!
With the first one I didn't try to get too creative. I just stuck with the basic colors and used them... except for the flesh color. Yes. That's suppose to be a flesh color. Even doing it "plainly", it took a little longer than I had anticipated. Its good to know for future paintings.
There are five paintingsto do a week. Weekends off, I guess. This will give me something to post after my daughter and her boys leave. (They give me so much fodder to write about!!) And it will be interesting to see how they are at the end. (She stops a moment. 'Hey... wait a minute. This is for a whole year. hmmmm.')
