Working Through the Dream is #15 in my series of Watercoloring Daily. Each piece is 10″ x 10″ (my scanner is only 9″ wide, so they appear as rectangles). This piece actually started as watercolor drawing of a figure and an animal, but I didn’t like it, so I kept pushing it until something happened with it. I’m liking this a lot now.
This is #9 in my series of daily watercolor paintings. It’s an under-painting (work-in-progress) of my friend Yvette sitting in the window of Cahir Castle in Ireland. I’m working from a photo, but I don’t like to trace. I drew the image lightly and erased as much of the line as possible before beginning to work in the watercolor. This piece, although small, will take a little more time because I don’t want it to have that cut-out look. Sometimes staying loose is harder than working tightly!
