'Polish #5' by Linda Hunt still life sketch


6X6"



I decided to try something a little different in this painting...what do you think?

8"X8"

This painting is a rework of a completed piece that I was never satisfied with.  I think that it works much better now.

'Polish' watercolor sketch by Linda Hunt

5"X6"
Still painting with water media.  I am trying to learn the vocabulary of water and paint.  I have some difficulty with trying to paint wet next to wet and will need to experiment with a blow dryer.  I am not sure why my paper reads as blue, but it is something that I will need to experiment with.  It is actually white 140 lb. paper.

I worked most of the day in the garden and had only enough time to do several small studies.  I am enjoying working with w/c it is quite a change from oil.

Tomato sketch by Linda Hunt

I have decided to spend a little time returning to watercolor and just enjoy the fluidity of the medium.  This was a quick sketch that I did yesterday to get my hands wet.  This is opaque water media.

Purple Bloom floral still life by Linda Hunt


These purple blooms are from my garden which is flowering with all of the great rains that we have been experiencing.  I took some time off from painting and it certainly takes time to get back into the swing of things.  I changed the background color in this painting and I like it much better.
