|Switch Grass In Winter. Watercolor.|
Approximately 11 x 8 inches.
Palette is Indigo, Quinacridone Gold, and Quinacridone Burnt Orange (there may be a wee touch of Prussian Blue mixed in, but it is wee). On Kilamanjaro 300 lb cold press watercolor paper.
Note: Day 20 in Thirty Paintings in 30 Days, and I've only not painted 2 days. I feel like a rock star!

|Mountainside. Watercolor and Crayon.|
Approximately 8 x 6 inches.
If you follow me on instagram, I made a few changes since I posted there--I adjusted the foreground to add some brighter colors among the shadows, but also added some darks. And, I used crayon to gray out and define the sky. Plus, I think it benefits by cropping the top of the painting down just a little bit. Decisions, decisions.
Honestly, one of my joys of painting is making decisions about what I want to do with my paintings--it's empowering. My successes and my failures, and they are mine.
The palette is nearly the same as yesterday, with quin pink replacing the permanent yellow deep.
Daniel Smith--indian yellow, quin pink, and prussian blue.
Caran D'ache Crayon--light beige (although if you ask me, it looks like a grayed down white)
Kilamanjaro 300 lb cold press paper.

|Three Trees. Watercolor.|
Approximately 9.5 x 7 inches.
I like yesterday's better, but the intent here, at least for me, is to paint every day.

|Abstract Tree Line. Watercolor.|
Approximately 8.5 x 12 inches.
I'll try not to inundate you--there may be a lot of photos without too much text.
Again, this photo is not fantastic. (I'm on a roll!) There's yellow cast in the whites since I was working after dark. I'll go back and correct it tomorrow.
