Background 6 - A Work in Progress

It was nice that we managed to have a bright and sunny day for a change with the temperatures starting off at 34F (1C) and by the late afternoon had climbed to 56F (13C).

I managed to get out and work in my garden for a bit until Ron finished servicing the lawn mower and got it ready for me to mow the lawn for the first time this year.

Since I have been using the leftover paint from when I paint in acrylic for backgrounds, I decided I may as well try that for some of my watercolours.

I applied washes of the colours I had been using from when I did Bookends (see posting on 04 May 2014) and this looks much like a morning sky.

I will post this painting at a later date once I have decided what I would like to put into the foreground.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and enjoy the artwork.
