In a little detour from my usual style, I played around with a little whimsical bunny drawing I was thinking about recently.

Watercolor on Mixed Media, 4x6 inches

Watercolor on Board, 4x6 inches
The second one is still in progress but I enjoyed seeing the two together...

Very Cherry

I was getting frustrated by another project and losing confidence, so I thought maybe if I stepped away and played today while the kids are with a sitter...

I haven't yet cropped this to my liking yet, but I think it's about 4x6. It's watercolor on paper.

The best part of this project? I was tired of overworking it so I ate the cherry. Now I can't go back into it because I have no reference!

Happy summer!

Studying hair.

I am really struggling with it. I'm having trouble with a full head of hair from behind as well as the movement I want to suggest. 

The face on hair was a study from a watercolor I liked that I found while doing research. I thought it might help with the back.

Here is a detail of a study for another part of the painting.

I have been working hard on the studies for a painting for a friend. It's taking a long time though because I am out of practice and time is so limited.

Here are some photos of my work in progress and a study of a pomegranate I did today.

It's coming along. I think I will continue to do some pomegranate studies for the next week or so (or until this one starts to go bad. Pomegranates are out of season so this one wasn't cheap so I have to use it to its full potential.
