Watercolour study of a strawberry

I'm currently working with watercolours and I am using dry on dry technique. I must say I am impressed with the striking quality in the reflection of the strawberry. I look forward with experimenting with watercolours. I believe the next study will be a fuzzy peach! 

Opening night #1 at the MUSE2016: A Representational Art Exhibition at Super Wonder Art Gallery

I had a great evening at the Super Wonder Art Gallery last night! I received great feedback about my work and feeling excited about returning to the second opening of the exhibit. Can't wait! I felt so content to be apart of this show and to be surrounded by amazing artists. I felt inspired!

Cloud studies

I'm not sure why but my eyes turn up to the skies and I am mesmerized by the billowy clouds.  Here are three little studies I did this morning and hopefully these will lead to oil paintings. 

More studies!

Well this is study #3 I believe for this week. I've decided to work with oils but this time on paper instead of on canvas. I can't wait to work on the clay-bord and aquabord I purchased the other day. I must admit I've been gazing at the sky a lot this summer and I hope to record the beautiful summer colours! I'm sure my palette will chance when the winter months come. The study below is still a work in progress. I will post the final version soon.
