I've been in Vancouver or the past three weeks savouring every wonderful moment with my two grandsons. Yes two. Everett arrived a few days after I arrived. I naively thought I would be able to catch up with the 30 Paintings in 30 Day Challenge. And as much as I would like to share with you that I was able. Well I was not. However snuggles and storybooks trump painting for awhile!
I have managed to complete five small paintings during this time. I painted some daisy and then figured it would work well as a poured painting. So I redid it. Both are below - which is your preference - the traditional approach...
...or the poured painting?
And then I thought I should do it once more as a negative painting. Have not had the chance to do this but I may. I think it is a good opportunity to illustrate the versatility of watercolour.
I brought along my iPad thinking I would-be able to blog during my visit. However my iPad did not recover from me dropping in on its corner last month. I had the glass replaced (subsequently voided the warranty - but that is another story) but the touch screen was acting up frustratingly so. Anyway I just managed to get my technology in order just two days before I was to travel back home. I am a complete Apple fan after this experience!
