While thinking of Lilly Pads I played with the Sketches App on my new IPad Pro and Apple Pencil. Watercolor on steroids! How delightfully playful to create! Could be a very useful technique!

Lately I have been bogged down with other projects, nearing the completion of the mural, and preparing for a big change. Hopefully by the end of summer I can back to doing more free painting, and blogging.
I love color!!! Today, I’m doing an experiment with warm and cold underpaintings. The first is Cobalt Blue with gesso, and the second is Cadmium Red with a little Burnt Sienna. The grayscale photo shows they are of the same tone. I will paint the same lilly pads with flower on each. Hopefully I can post at least one of them later today.
