Sunshine on a Cloudy Day

Last night's painting exercise was to cut a photo of a flower in half, then paint the discarded half, finishing the image. This is the result.

I went to the Botanical Gardens today. After wandering around for half an hour, listening to and looking at the birds, I went to my favourite part of the gardens - the rock pool. I found some lizards sunning themselves. Drawing lizards is good, because they hardly move! However, I was so engrossed in drawing these two lizards that I didn't see the rest of the family around them! I lost count at 17, water dragons about the length of the tip of your fingers to your elbow.

Painting with watercolours doesn't give me as much control as pencils do, so it's been a bit of a learning curve this week. The exercise we did in class was about going from light to dark, but I haven't posted that here. These are just little doodles I've been doing, one before (above), and one during class last night.

I hope I get better at this. Practice, practice, practice.
