An Arty Weekend Part I

Oh my, there are times when life is very full and last weekend was one of the special happenings in my life. I was able to visit my girl friend who lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Barbara is a lurker here at EDM, but I hope that she will soon create a blog. She is a talented watercolor artist, calligrapher, bookmaker, cook and more. She just retired as a volunteer fire fighter and EMT.

We played all day in her studio after watching by Shirley Trevena who is not afraid of using color. She has two books out: Taking Risks with Watercolor and Vibrant Watercolors.

This chicken with attitude is Barbara's picture created after seeing the video and following the suggestion that we gather 3 to 5 objects and paint them. The lower picture is mine.

Well, blogger is not going to let me add any more pictures, so I'll continue the discussion is my next post!

These drawings are great! And I really think that Barbara should start posting artwork on EDM forum too. I really like how you use colors in your drawings, and hopefully you'd be able to post more of your drawings.
