Cardoon from my brothers garden

 I haven't painted pure water colour in a couple of months but I came home from a visit to my brothers with these cardoon and just had to paint them.

Joined Paul at his exhibit venue on the Leigh Art Trail

 I joined Paul at Millys delicatessen for a couple of hours sketching on what turned out to be a very hot day.   This summer has been so variable that I really havent done much sketching at all!

 I bought these lillies before the weekend expecting them to open quite quickly.  They didn't!  So I decided to go ahead and paint them in bud and will hopefully get a second painting out of them once they are fully in flower.

El Agua, Water,

 A painting for the Venezuelan Watercolour Association, AVA virtual exhibition. "Water" was the theme of the exhibition, and although I live right on the water it has been far too cold to sit out and do a painting.   I have been enjoying the challenge of painting glass and including either pewter or brass trays so this is what I decided to submit.
