I've been working on this second version and like it much better. I think the colors and composition work better and it was definitely much easier not working on the dark gesso for this one.

It's been very strange not working on something for my blog very often lately. I really miss not having time to paint or draw for it nearly every day, but also, it's been good to take some time to think about why I do it, what I'd like to try, etc. I absolutely love making the little paintings and hope to get back to it soon as I can. The teaching I've been doing has got me inspired to do some pen and ink wash drawings as a practice and watercolor sketches, too, just to try to shake up my seeing a bit!

You have an awesome control of your palette here. The continuous browns and golds with a touch of light blue. I love that color combo. :)

This one is awesome! Love the punched up reds. It makes it more inviting. Can I come?

This works very well. I gave up the dark gesso myself.
