Computer problems yesterday ate up a lot fo my time (and sanity), so I just did a little painting. The sort where I leave everything out and then, once in a while, can't resist going over and dabbing at something for a few minutes. Not the best way to work, but it gets the paints wet. I finished my second pine cone study, then played around abit trying to the get the colors for a few silk flowers I have: chinese lanterns, poppy, hydrangea, and (I think) batchelor button.
In the evening began this pine cone, similar to the first one; this one is unfinished as yet.
