Kristin 80-83: Painting Small

More playing and fun, all in the name of trying to get 20 paintings done in less than a month...I got some artist trading cards to experiment with different papers and to work on painting small (2.5 x 3.5")! The nice thing about working small is that you have to get right to the point, simplify, and for me I don't feel each painting is so precious. Here are 4 alpine plants, painted from photos I took last summer (these make appropriate subjects because they are miniature themselves).

 Alpine Buttercup; gouache, pencil and white pen on watercolor paper

  I don't know this one...because my photo didn't have the whole plant. But it's some sort of pea.
acrylic and pen on canvas paper.

Not totally sure again, maybe an alpine vetch; gouache and pen on pastel paper

 Moss Campion; gouache, acrylic and pen on "acrylic board"

Very nice collections of flowers. Lots of variety of materials there, yet they all looks well together.
