Today for my day 28 painting for "30 Paintings in 30 Days" I used a photo I had of a stargazer lily. I think they are beautiful but I find their fragrance is a bit overwhelming. Can you believe I only have 2 more paintings to do for the challenge? I can't.
The sketch below was done at the Hidden Oak Cafe at the Bayard Cutting Arboretum. The cafe is in their historic manor house. On occasion they have given artists a hard time in the past about painting in there. I did sketch inside there once before and nobody said anything then either, so I felt pretty safe. I sat myself down in a corner so I could work on my lap with the table blocking me from view. Watercolors don't make a mess anyway. lol This is 5 x 7.
