The foxglove grew tall and fell over with the rain, so I didn’t mind cutting a few stems and bringing it indoors. I do hope that the rest seeds itself profusely. I know so little about watercolor, I thought I might spend some time this Summer exploring it a little more seriously. You’ll have to trust me that the drawing below looks better in person, but I’m still working on it and will take a more careful photograph later.
Home today, with one girl sick and the boy wanting to do something other than watch it rain. So we got out the watercolors, for a start. I promised my creativity coach I would get started on 15 minutes of drawing a day again, and today I met my quota. Actually, I promised myself. I’m getting ready to put up a Summer Drawing Show exhibit at the library, and for the first time in 5 years as curator I will be including a few of my own drawings. I think it has been about 7-8 years since I have exhibit my work in public. Too long.
My favorite parts of this watercolor are the Transformer and Hello Kitty t-shirts. The kids enjoyed that as well.
