More Practice Exercises

Lindsay (dear daughter) had a minimum day today but I managed to get to the gym and get in some painting time. I tried two exercises, the first of which seemed to be very simple but proved to be frustrating. Trying to watch on-line lessons and paint along isn't as easy as one would think. Anyway, the first is a sunset sky behind a simple cinder cone mountain, Mt. Fuji. I definitely need to work on painting "looser", this looks more like acrylic than watercolor. The second painting is Arizona Butte. This one came out a little better but still not as loose as I'd like. The sky actually turned out nicely but the scanner didn't pick up all the color, but you get the gist.

Happy Thanksgiving!
