#27, #28, #29- Sheryl Hawkins
Now that we have seen the sun for a few days, it is making me look forward to summer and what better way than to paint summery feeling watercolors!
All three of these watercolors are painted from reference photos of places on Long Island. Long Island is a beautiful place to live, and there are many painting subjects. I enjoyed painting the reflections of the boats and the top painting was just fun. The people I added to the bottom one added a level of difficulty for me since painting people isn't in my comfort zone. I tried to keep them loose this time until I get more comfortable with them and not as afraid to get into more detail. I would love to stop letting people painting freak me out since they really can add life to a painting!
