We had a nice turnout, at least 14 of us were there. After I painted my husband and I stopped at a new (to us anyhow) observation deck on A1A. Its a short walk to the river. On the way we saw the wild bobcat below the painting, its the first time I have been able to photograph a wild one, seen a few but never with a camera handy. It was a thrill! He didn't stay long, he was very pretty with nice spots. I am guessing he was about 40 pounds, much bigger than a house cat.

Daily Painting 503 Twilight in the Old Hickory Grove

Its watercolor, 5 x 7 on Yupo paper. This was a painting that sort of painted itself. I put some paint on the paper, did some stuff to make textures and I saw the trees in the textures. I got rid of the stuff that didn't fit and brought out the trees. Its lots of fun to do.

Daily Painting 502 Mother of Thousands Plein Air

This plant is slowly taking over our yard in spots, I like it though. Each little notch on the leaves will grow a new plant.

I did a demo under the painting, the first is a photo I took of a similar plant. You can click on the pictures to see them larger. I prepare the yupo paper, a couple of colors of watercolor are washed onto the paper, I blow on it and tilt the paper till I like the effect. I lay it flat and I let this dry overnight. Then I took a gel pen, drew the plant. The gel pen I used has ink that is not waterproof so it washes off.
The last part of the demo shows where I have wet sections of the flowers with plain water, blot with a paper towel. Then I start laying the colors in the blotted flowers and leaves.

I am enjoying doing something different other than my usual oil painting. The painting is 5 x 7

DAILY PAINTING 500!!!!!!! Its Me! Self Portrait

I was a nervous wreck the last three days, I didn't have a clue what to paint. I knew what I wanted to paint today but not then. It feels so weird to know that I have posted so many paintings. I am not sure whats next, I don't think I am going to be posting every day but who knows. I think it will be less now, there is a lot in real life I want to do other than painting every day. This is me at Heathcote Botanical Gardens here in Fort Pierce. I think Amy, the director there took the photo I worked from. It was real cold that day, thats why I have the heavy shirt on. Its 8 x 10, oil and not for sale.
