Grocery Day

Today was my day for running into town and getting the groceries and everything else we need for the week. After I got most of the stuff put away I drew and painted a few of the items I bought today.
I learned how to do this page from a DVD I got called Beginning Watercolor Journaling by Christina Lopp and Gay Kraeger. I love the DVD even though it's fairly simple what they show. The thing is, they show a few important things to get you going so I am glad I bought it.

Fruit in Bowl

Wow. It's been a long time since I've posted something. I really have been busy. I am taking several classes but have resisted signing up for more as it got to be too much.
I am in Fallbrook, California visiting my sister. She was called in to work today so I had some time to myself. I sat down and painted this pear in a bowl that was sitting on her table. I'm very happy with it. I went for wild and painted the shadowy white interior with purple. I felt like gray would have been boring and blah. This looks colorful and makes me happy. I hope you enjoy it too.
Done in my journal on watercolor paper with gouache paints.
