Tonks and Blue Shadows.

Earlier this year I made a list of goals – I’ve done quite a few so far and yesterday, we gave ourselves an early anniversary present, which I also happened to put on my “what I want to do this year” list.

 

We got a cat! and named him Tonks.

I had an idea for some watercolor paintings the other day – limited colors with swirls and lines as accents. I centered it, naturally, around a fairy.

At first I thought I would just do something black and white, but then decided a cool palette with blue and light green hues would fit the black accents better.

 

Little Monster (#16)

This morning I painted one of the little green monsters we got the guys at the office. It’s mostly inspired by this really cool green shirt one of them was wearing the other day, but the monster was more fun to paint, and was still green…..

Painting in my Head (#12)

Yesterday, while we were on our walk/hike I stopped and paused and started painting in my head – visualizing the image I was going to paint – and then did a really really rough 5 second sketch in my notebook and called it a day. This morning I created a 6×6 painting of what was going on in my head. I like it :D

Watercolor on the West Coast #9 and #10

Yesterday, I woke up feeling sort of bad and didn’t end up doing anything, so this morning (still sickish) I made two pieces. The first, for yesterday, I just drew in my notebook, and the second is inspired by a friend. :) Hopefully we’ll all get over whatever we’re coming down with quickly.
