Harvest Time

Painting watercolor needs the right mood. I am not in that mood for watercolor all the time. But today I think I have to do something because I am under pressure.

The Etsy watercolor team has a September challenge. It is due on Sept. 18th. If I don't do it now I am not sure if I'll meet the deadline.

The original photo for us to paint is a pile of pumpkins.
I thought it would be fun to add some flowers.

This is the first time I try on the new paper I brought from China for still-life painting. I found the paper is just fantastic. It is much better than some other expensive ones. I should have brought more.

If you find that my style is so much different from previous ones, I think it is because I am painting still-life. I found that the methods that I use to paint still-life is very different from painting landscapes.

Lily this is wonderful! Very light and delicate treatment. I'm curious about the paper from China. How about describing it on the WWEteam board?
