Aside from the ridiculous city ordinances that seem to multiply faster than weeds around here...don't ask... I've decided that Palm Coast is garden and beach. And container gardens in a lanai are a beautiful thing. What was supposed to be a beautiful watercolor rendering of one of the healthier looking peace lilies in our lanai, became another exercise in frustration...but it was fun anyway..if there is such a thing as frustrating fun! The more I attempt to paint in that medium, the more I appreciate the skill and planning needed. Maybe it's a technique acquired only with hours and hours of practice, and going to a few workshops wouldn't hurt either! But many thanks to my plein air friends over whose shoulders I've taken the equivalent of a few classes...at least to get me started.
|An early morning attempt at watercolor...how to do it is still a mystery to me! The illusive subject matter...an ultimate challenge|
|Fushia cuttings with roots already!!|
|It amazes me how fast things grow here in the summer!..not to mention the Banana Spider and her enormous web! Can you see her scary looking shadow to her left?|
|A Matanzas Sunset- another attempt!|
