Re: August Challenge -- Come Join Us!

Happy Tuesday! Let's go change the world today!
Here's my first: a study, 4x6 ( 11.43 x 15.24cm) watercolor on paperboard.
C&C welcome!
Used a bit of pigment from almost all my various watercolor supplies: prang crayons, derwent wc pencils, school paints, artist tube paint, grumbacher opaque paint. Even some resist!
Remember to do something today to change your world!

Re: August Challenge -- Come Join Us!

Ntl. this looks beautiful! You used such an array of art supplies. It came together so nicely, with areas of softness and points of focus. I rather like this!

Jo, this is gorgeous! The golden colors really glow on there, and there's just enough detail to please the eye. Well done!

Re: August Challenge -- Come Join Us!

Jo, your prickly pears, pads, posies, and tunas are quite expressive, but belie the dangers! You caught the translucence of the petals and the thickness of the pads. Your piece is eye-catching.
