Today was the Sayville Garden Tour. I had previewed the gardens when I did the black and white sketches of them so I picked the two gardens I wanted to paint in. This is the view of the first garden. There were many spots I would have loved to paint but most of them were in direct sun and it would have been too hot on this very sunny day. I found a very shady spot and painted this view toward the house. I even put in the home owner, Donna. She loved the painting and bought it. Yay!!!
The second garden property had all these fun spots. This one had a pink pig tucked into the foliage.
Yes...I know...I needed a direct watercolor painting for today. Each garden had musicians...a jazz group in the first garden and these two ladies playing in the second. I had a little time after painting the garden itself, so I turned and painted the two musicians as my day 15 painting for #30x30DirectWatercolor2018. They were so delighted that I painted them and kept telling me that I made them look better than in real life. lol They were sweet.
