with all of this snow I have been rather house bound
(7 and a half inches so far)
a good time to "study"
these are my attempts at a "naturalist study" type of painting
(what I learned in watercolor class from high school is slowly coming back to me)
I had a classical watercolor artist (Ross Shellenberger) as a teacher
... I wish I could call him up with a question or two!
I am finding this to be a good escape right now
(all 5 of us are housebound)
but when I get into a painting I lose track of place and time and find quiet amid the commotion
... exactly what got me through the high school years ...
