Rain turned to near-snow today, but nothing stayed to whiten the ground. Bought flowers for the house, so that's what I wanted to draw. This is gouache, with no pencil or ink first.

I love the shadows! This is scrummy :-)

I love your artwork. It's fresh, and interesting, and you have a gift for color.

Oh, thank you! I had fun with this one.

Liz--this is great!!! I love how it is singing--and the lack of pencil and pen lets it breathe in a really interesting way....What kind of gouache are you using? How do you keep it organized?

Maria:

See the tiny paintbox below for the organization! (Really.) The gouache is from M. Graham tubes, squeezed into the paintbox in tiny dabs and then rewetted with my waterbrush. I wouldn't have enough color to do something big, but I'm finding I can do a couple of sketchbook pages without running out of my colors. And it fits in my pencil case - I don't have to get anything special out in order to paint - so I am MUCH more apt to use it. A great discovery.
