WDE Feb 10: Horses, sunflowers & pastries [poss. MI]

Here are some watercolor sketches again

Horses - 4x4" 300# CP (1 hr)



Sunflowers - 5x3" on 300# CP (approx 20 min)



Pastries - 2/3 of 7x10" Canson Mix-Media 98# (20 min)




I also did some super quick sketches of the portholland-cornwall and the cow scenes, but those were muddy blurs not worth posting!

I'll try to finish the horses & sunflowers later & may also reattempt the portholland-cornwall beach scene.

I like all these, the horses especially - great sense of movement.

I'd love to see these 'unblurred' Marilou!
Can you scan instead of photo'ing them?

Thse horses look very lively and the colours on all are lovely!

Good quick sketches - you really captured the pastries with minimal linework.

Very good desserts. Brief strokes but effective. The horses are energetic too.

I like the fresh-and-loose treatment, especially in the pastries.
