I think she may have a natural talent for the art of drawing!
Before Lita arrived that morning, I had worked a bit on my Girl with Horse painting, adding more layers of thin paint, building up the image with shadows and lights:
With this painting left to dry, I turned to watercolor only to discover I was plumb out of watercolor paper. So, I decided to do an acrylic on canvas. I've been watching the sunflowers grow and bloom in my garden which inspired me to paint the flower of my home state of Kansas:
As usual with our Creative Saturdays, we take a break for lunch, a walk through Barnes and Noble (Lita came out with a armful of books!) and a visit to Kilwin's chocolate shop. Also, as usual, we ran out of time and didn't finish our art. But, as I said before it's not about "finishing" but "doing" and that's exactly what we did! When our paintings and drawings are finished, a future blog post will proudly display the results.
As this week begins, I look forward to our next Exploration Task and next weekends Digital Art Day at Lita's. I hope this inspires you to "just do it"...get out those paints and pencils and feed your creative soul!
