View from El Expresso Friday 6-19-09

Inspired by Leigh, I've challenged myself to do a painting a day. And here's my first one. Mostly watercolor, I struggled to see let alone draw how to do those scalloped overhangs under the balcony. After a zillion attempts and the help of my camera I finally figured it out. I have a lot to learn about watercolor. I may attempt this again in a more free form Charles Reid style. On this trip,I packed more art supplies than clothes, and I still forgot some things. Out comes the list.

Beautiful, Suzi - I am so jealous even if it is the hot season down there - I remember that view!!!

Hi Jan . . . you'd love the arm chair birding down here too! We just sit out on the patio and the birds come to us. We should arrange a PAC "retreat" here. I can get lodging for us at a very reasonable rate, as little as $25 a night, and we've got a huge space here for art.

$25 a night! A PAC retreat it is! Your watercolor sketches are wonderful, full of rich color. What a great way to keep in touch.
