finally, time to try out the watercolor!
Right after the watercolor workshop, I needed to get back to helping with the cattle here on the ranch. Its spring, and we decided to go thru the herd, and maybe sell some, and haul others to various pastures, where they will have good summer vacations! First, the bigger calves needed to be gone thru, sorted and pretty heifers choosen to keep. Today, we loaded a stock trailer and off to the sale my fella went . We sent a huge young bull, so gentle, and I hope he finds a good home. I have been thinking about the watercolor workshop, and practising the things she showed us. I do hope she can put a book out at some point, she says that may happen! She had some wonderful example sheets she had prepared, and placed into clearpages for sale. I bought some, they were like pages in a good book!! I worked on one of the paintings I had begun at the workshop, where I had gotten the first colorful layer on. Alone, at home starting in again to finish was a bit challenging, but I remembered her demo's and went ahead. This is how it finished for me.
What do you think? I had done those chicken drawings earlier this winter just so I could have them to learn on at this class. I am glad I was ready, and I also am glad I did them also in pastel!!! It was like a "'twofer!"
