for the rookiepainter.blogspot challenge
watercolor on Yupo
This painting has been a struggle for me and I fear it is getting overworked.  So I leave it now, maybe to visit it again later........maybe not.  The blue skies of autumn are whispering their gentle reminder to get out and enjoy before it's too late.  I did hang out at the playground with Harry where I played Ursula to his mermaid (?) and we lived in the snowgloo (I think he meant igloo) under the slide.  Let's all just play like kids again!

Then it is worth the struggle, Katrina because you have created a fresh, loose and colourful painting and it looks wonderful.

Brotesdeternura,thanks for stopping by and the nice comments. Your Lazy Lion is just right and I left a comment. I follow Jean Haines but have not done her challenges yet.

Irina, thank you. I like visiting your blog.

Anna, I am glad it comes across as fresh and easy since it was not. Thanks for checking in.

Beautiful work and I love the unfinished part as much as the flow of the pigment in the fruits. Lovely!

Awesome. The shape of that bowl lip made this a really tough challenge. You did a great job making it work.
