The rain sketch is no way a clunker! I think it's one of the best things I've seen you do. Maybe it's the impressionistic quality, which I favor, but boy-o-boy you captured the moment.

I thought you had left already, but then I never have the time right(just ask my family)!
I love this Schmincke colours of yours very much...and your "messing" around with it. (I'm so envious of the way you mess..) It suits your style perfectly. The pods are wonderful and your raindrops are spectacular, you've captured both the motion and the emotion there! And I recognize the I-just-woke-up-look...great rendering!

Thanks so much, everyone! I'm glad my color forays interest you! I'm having a harder time with these Schminckes getting the colors of the images right on my monitors. The blue one I posted today is too bright and I don't have time to fix it right now. I compose on a laptop Mac and then I check the colors on my desktop PC. I'll deal with this tonight. I used Masquepen in the raindrop sketch and added some white lines with a Sharpie poster paint white pen. I'll have more to say about the paints in this set in the next day or two.

Ooh Laura - what a great post! The way you've done the rain is incredible - nobody paints water as well as you, and I love the magnolia pods too. These new colors are really working out for you - the colors seem very clear and pure from my monitor. And that's a beautiful drawing of C - my kids often wake up in the afternoon too, so no judgment here.

Very interesting to read about your color explorations. Lovely waterwork! Did you do the happily splashing drops of water last with gouache?

the rain was glorious wasn't it?!!

your magnolia pods, these and others I've seen, are my favorites.

gorgeous portrait too!
