300th post and some attempts at watercolour.

300

Yep this is it! 300th post. If I was better at planning I would have gotten a special post and everything. But as it is, I just have a few new watercolour sketches done from life.

I painted this in my backyard. I'm still struggling a lot with color mixing. Especially in the warm colours.

I drew this from a moving pontoon. We were going fast enough that houses I was drawing kept wizzing past before I had more than 5 lines down so I concentrated on the mountain in the distance and added detail as we got closer. Then I painted it when we got back to the cottage. I'm happy enough with the result.
