woyww - clematis in stages

 My desk is littered with w/c paints and different stages of painting the latest flower.  Stage 1 of painting a clematis followed by a pic of stage 3. 
 It will sit overnight drying and then I move on to stage 4.  Anna Mason says most people stop painting at this stage thinking they might ruin it but she suggests you keep going.  I was ready to give it up at stage 1 as it looked awful... glad I am following instructions.
 A completed blueberry painted last week but too busy to post.
Finally the white cosmos that I started two weeks ago.  Painting at my desk is all fits and starts.
Have a lovely woyww peek and I promise to slowly visit lots of inspiring desks.

woyww - painting white

After a leisurely lunch with RosA I have come back to finish the white flower exercise.  Following the steps from Anna Mason's online watercolour school has really helped me understand what is involved.  The pic is in shadow as we have landed up with a very overcast day. 
Whenever I have lunch with RosA I always come home with goodies.  Look at these gorgeous papers, dies and stamped tissue paper and a beautiful card from Shaz in OZ.  Always lovely to spend time with a like minded friend and share our bounty.  
Join me in a woyww hop to lots of inspiring desks.

woyww - leaves


A busy desk which clearly shows the basil leaf I was painting.  An exercise in tone and hue or in this case a basil leaf on steroids.  
more gum leaves as once I am on a theme I tend to stay their for awhile.  Hopefully your woyww desk has lots of interesting projects to inspire me.   I promise to visit over the week.
Have a lovely woyww visit.
