Landscape Painting - Week 3

Last Friday were were in the studio again working on the 2 paintings that have been begun so far as well as starting a third.  I don't know if I've ever worked on 3 different paintings in the same day but it felt very productive!  Below are the updates on the 2 landscapes that have been posted previously.

Watercolor II - Painting a White Flower

For Watercolor II at Filoli, one of the exercises was to paint a white flower for which I chose a simple rose.  It is a little hard to see on a screen but my completed piece is shown below.

21st Amendment

I had lunch with a friend recently at The American Grilled Cheese Kitchen.  She was running late, which gave me the time to complete the quick sketch below of the 21st Amendment Cafe & Restaurant which is across the street.  I used a water soluble pencil and a waterbrush.
