Today we painted A bell pepper, white onion, and potatoes
We used watercolor pencils to sketch out first. The watercolor pencils will blend well with most paints. We used #ArtistLoft Crimson Red, Viridian Green, Yellow Ochre and #Premium Chinese White , round soft watercolor brush, and watercolor pad 6×6.

Last week was the Lavender Festival 2016. It always amazes me all you can do with lavender.
We experienced the taste of lavender ice cream with fresh honey from the bees on the 123farm. There was also lavender wine, beer, and champagne, brisket with lavender sauce. We took a walk through the lavender fields amazed at the beauty of them.
It was a great day.
Still working on the Fruit Series, so here we are with “Spatter of
Grapes”. This is 9x 12 Oil on Canvas. We are using samples of oil paints we received from Winsor and Newton. The paint is the riches purple they could have created in my opinion. Then I took the brush and just splattered the paint for the background.
Loving the day spent with a lot of sheep at the Sheep Shearing Event. Learned a lot about the process of shearing, washing the wool, drying it out, dyeing it and spinning the wool. We made a friend of one of the sheep who kept coming back to where we were every time he went away to join the others. The animal kingdom is really amazing.
Here are the sheep after they have been sheared of their wool, it was about 80 degrees today so I know they feel so much better. These would come right up to you so you could pet and feed them. As you can see they were not camera-shy at all.
