Having a lovely post-Christmas lull, painting and enjoying being holed up in the house!
Winter blew in on a Nor-easter today. Currently it is 27 degrees, we have inches of snow, it is still coming down and, as it has most of the day, the snow is blowing past the snow sideways.
This house is so cozy and snug… perfect for staying inside and catching up on art. I recently shared two in progress pieces for my watercolor lettering class with Val Webb. Here they are, colored in:
The interlaced knotwork, watercolored. I need more practice, but I’ve learned so much including how to make it look like the center bit is rounded!
And here is the “S”:
Part-way there. I’d love to have a plum colored background, but my skills aren’t quite up to that yet. I want to practice more then see if I can put deep plum around the “S” and outside the yellow border.
I’m pleased with the shading on the yellow knotwork (my own design!), but the turquoise is a bit overworked.
Today I did this scroll. Getting better, bit by bit!
And just because I couldn’t resist….
Showing Pigwidgeon the pug ornament he, Eli and Paul gave me for Christmas. Can you say CUTE? PUG-LOVE!
And we’ll end where we began…with the snow blowing sideways!
