Water Color.2

My learned Aunt Cynie says: “See something; draw it, and then paint it.”  She even went so far as to send me brushes and water color paints.  Get started. Get painting.  Well, guess what, I finally broke out the paints and brushes and used a recent photograph of a catamaran on Lake Michigan as my inspiration.  I looked.  I sketched.  I painted.  I enjoyed.  Immensely. More to come.  Painting is fun.  Way, way too much fun.  So, yes, much more to come.

Water Color by Charles McKelvy.  Aunt Cynie said to be sure and add some green to the water, and I did.  Honestly, I did.

I looked at the photograph; I sketched the picture; I painted the scene with the paints Aunt Cynie sent me.
