World Watercolor Month, Day 5 of 31

You know what I just realized? I have been painting for five days and I only did a tree on day FIVE. That has got to be some kind of record for me. lol

Of course, I've been relying heavily on blues, as is my wont. I think tomorrow, no matter what I end up doing, I'm going to stay away from blue*.

So, today's little experiment. Well, although it's bragging to say so, I've got to tell you that I made this stunning background. Seriously, it was so gorgeous that I almost just posted the background and called it good. But then I decided it needed a tree on it (well, that was it's purpose); so I plunked the tree down and then completed obscured it. Alas.

This one, once again, I was trying to push the water around with my brush and a teensy bit of color (so unlike my acrylic work on fabric which is all about layering on thick swaths of color); although after I completed 10 - 12 greens, yellows, blues, reds and browns for the leaves in that tree, you'd never know that I had only used a "little' color. 

Anyway. Here it is. Day Five. 

This is EXHAUSTING. lol

I'm so enjoying seeing your experiments in watercolor! I love that they still have your artistic sensibility in spite of the change in medium. thanks for sharing!

Today seeing one of "your trees" in paint rather than fiber - lovely, indeed. The bits of background that peek from behind are quite wonderful ...and this journey with watercolor work each day is delight for me.
