coffee and watercolors…

Thursday, May 4th, 2017

 

 

Hi everyone!

We’ve had a beautiful, sunny week! wow!

Every morning I’ve painted something and then enjoyed

sunbathing in our terrace…

 

I’ve put more layers on this canvas

now it looks like this, not complete yet.

I’ve played with coffee. A few coffee based papers are waiting

for action.

 

I don’t like this as a painting but

I love those details of it!

Hi everyone!

Thanks for your kind and supportive words last week!
