Day 27, daily painting challenge

I’ve been pretty busy the last few weeks. I am grateful that Jim likes to cook, otherwise I may have starved!

Today I finished an abstract landscape, that we see a lot at camp. We are so far down in the ravine that, in places, when you look up you can’t see the sky. You see this glorious green glow from the leaves and deep, dark branches. I did a watercolor underpainting for this one. I am not convinced it was necessary, although it made the pastel painting portion very quick.

I have been meaning to finish the last painting in a series for my daughter, and was able to get that done. I am really pleased with how it turned out.

While my nose was running yesterday and my ears were clogged about all I could handle was a less than stellar landscape. I feel better today and on second look decided I really like the color combination and will use that again.

I also got squirreled by zentangles, they are amazing aren’t they! I spent many evenings over the holidays working on these two. I love them and want to do more!
