Painting #50 - Blooming Saguaro
Painting #50! Half-way there!! WHOOHOO!
I really didn't know what I would paint for #50 but I wanted it to be special to mark my half-way point. I had no idea it would be this one.
My neighbor in Arizona has a Saguaro that was blooming and I insisted that my husband stop so I could take a photo. Saguaros don't usually bloom this early so I was thrilled to find it.
It is one of the first paintings I did when we got back to Wisconsin and when I went to post it on my Blog I looked to see what number it would be and there it was, #50!
Funny how these things work out.
I have been reading a book about using more light in painting watercolors (Elizabeth Kincaid's "Paint Watercolors That Dance With Light") and am trying to do just that. I am pleased with these results because I did manage to get the light in there.
