Reds And Blues

I thought you might enjoy seeing some of my watercolor paintings I did recently in my art journal.

My cherry tomatoes are ripe for picking – they are my “red” subject:

They taste as sweet as candy!  🙂

And here are my “blue” subjects – blueberries and bellflowers:

I started with a pencil sketch first before painting in watercolor:

I enjoyed painting these subjects outside this last weekend in the cooler weather.

Wishing you a happy day filled with a rainbow of color!  🙂
