In between everything else, I'm also taking an online class, Sketchbook and Watercolor: Journal Style at Joggles with Jane LaFazio. I must admit to be behind with my homework, but am reading the lessons as they are posted, and hoping to catch up later.
This past weekend I was able to do a couple quick paintings in a tiny journal in my hotel room, from leaves collected outside. The lesson was on "green" leaves, but sometimes we have to make do, and use what we can find, and since the leaves had turned in that area, mine aren't green. When painting the first one, I forgot to leave some white (oops), but I remembered when painting the second leaf. I do love the way the second leaf came out, and am hoping to do more painting in the future.
