|Lobstah! Watercolor travel sketch|
This past summer I was blessed to be able to travel to New England with my husband. We like to do long car trips together & we ended up in Portsmouth, NH. One of our favorite spots is Newick's Lobster House. It's always a fine, if messy dinner. I created a small watercolor sketch the next morning. I really liked the juiciness of the paint and the black ink lines. One of my goals for 2018 was to add more whimsy to my paintings and I think this captured it.

I started with an underpainting of yellows to create a glow. Golden has such a nice line of acrylic paint in heavy body, fluid and high flow consistencies.
Now it's Christmas Eve and I'm working on updating my blog. Just wanted to share a recent painting with you. 2018 was filled with travel for me & I expect more paintings to emerge from the hundreds of images I took. Stay tuned.
I hope 2019 is filled with beautiful moments, good health and prosperity for us all.
I am grateful for the many blessings of my life as it is today!
