Spring Time

I have hard time changing the media.After completing my watercolor challenge I hoped I could start another one with acrylics or maybe oils but it appeared to be not easy.There is some kind of barrier I can not get over.
So,here is my next painting with watercolors.It is 4 1/2 x 6 on Strathmore watercolor paper .The brand of the paints is Faber Castell.
Actually this painting is a part of the new challenge I started inspired by the Water Media Forum of Wet Canvas.It is called 100 Days of Summer and the participants put a goal for themselves to achieve during this summer.My goal is to complete between 30 and 50 paintings and sketches in water media-watercolors,watercolor pencils, acrylics and gouache.

I Am Done With My Watercolor Challenge

This is the last watercolor of the challenge I started in my other blog -Vanyas Art Journal- in order to improve my skills in watercolor.I am glad I completed it successfully and can go on with another one.I am thinking about a similar challenge with acrylics on paper.

An Old Man With His Goat

I am on my way to finish my watercolor challenge.I am working on my last painting.If you are interested to see all the paintings you can visit my other blog Vanyas Art Journal clicking on the painting on the side bar on the right.
Gradually I came to the idea to start a similar challenge with acrylics.It will be a great motivational task to improve my skills in acrylics completing a whole sketchbook of acrylic or watercolor paper.Yes,it will be great! I can't wait to start it.
This one is watercolor # 14.I drew the figure and the animal with blue watercolor pencil before I applied the watercolor.
The paper is Canson,9x12,Faber and Castell watercolors.
