It's cold outside. It's warm outside! It's cold outside. A couple of teaser days over the weekend had me running around with my camera (an indulgence--possibly in the wrong direction--I bought a Samsung Galaxy 8E tablet on Ebay with the idea that it had a good camera and then without downloading to the cumbersome laptop for reference photo painting use, I could refer right to the tablet) taking landscape shots.
Our "Watercolor Dabbling" group meets for a couple of hours once a week, and it's a nice change of pace to paint in the company of others--four or five of us, with vastly different methods, styles and goals.
My goal today was to translate one of my cell phone snaps of a local scene to a painting with a little life. I like the foreground.
