    Took a page from Judy’s book and used my Cotman Travel set for these, on Stonehenge paper that I don’t like!  All are smallish – 4 x 5.  Found the flowers the most challenging as I couldn’t make a good purple with the Cotman.  Each came in under the 30 mins including sketch and wash dry time.

    Two nice little sketches – even without a good purple.

    Your being kind – definitely not my best, but another 90+ day, trying to paint something!

    These are lovely, Fiona.  Well done in under 30 minutes!  That’s good.  Isn’t this hot weather ridiculous?  I feel like a dish rag.  At least we don’t have to get the hair dryer out to dry our paintings!  😀

    Fifi, these are super! I’m so impressed you did them so quickly! I’m jealous! It’s been very hot here in western VA, too. I think my favorite is the couple on the bench.

      Thanks, Lora – I do like doing these time trials, but as it’s so hot, I am working in the kitchen instead of the loft, and I only brought down my travel palette and a couple of brushes, and some paper I’m not happy with!

    Considering all the challenges, paper, paint, heat, time limit, you’ve done a great job. I like the addition of the ink accents on the flowers. The colors are lovely and don’t have to be exactly what’s in the image. The bench scene is also well done–however, I would have liked to have seen a few darker darks on the tree trunk and wall and some shadow on the ground.

      Yep, you’re right! I did do some shadows, albeit very faint, as I couldn’t make a decent dark with the Cotman – would have taken me the whole 30 mins to do that!!

    I’m just in awe of the prolific output you ladies are producing, and such good quality too.
