Two lunchtime watercolours from December

I had a great Christmas with my family and friends, unfortunately I still haven’t mastered handling the stress of everything that has to be done before the holidays. It’s one of the busiest times of the year for me work-wise. If I was clever I’d buy all the presents and write all the Christmas cards the month before, but I’m not that smart.
So, I did not paint as much as I’d have liked in December but still my lunchtime watercolour effort is helping me produce more work than ever before. The more I paint, the better I become which of course feels good. Next year, I will paint more often and I’ll paint larger formats too. One of my sons is studying abroad in the New Year so now I have a studio space at home until he comes back in the summer. I guess it won’t be long before he flies the nest completely, sad, but I gain a studio.

Happy New Year! 🙂

  1. Happy new year to you too. I can see you can find time to paint no matter where or when. And it´s true, you are improving a lot painting skies and water effects, The only BUT I see in the first it´s quite centered, this is not a problem because of freshness and the color in that wonderful sky.Congratulations, I´ve missing my almost daily "dose" of art but that´s christmas.

  2. Thank you setxu! I'm looking forward to getting back to a routine again. Christmas is fun but it's very disruptive too. I'm curious, did you receive anything in the post from me? I hope it wasn't lost on the way to you.

  3. No I haven´t received anything yet, don´t worry once I get you can be sure I let you know, it´s not very strange this kind of delays in spanish mailing. Did you put your address on it , I would like to send you a watercolor. If you don´t please send me a mail. Thank you.

  4. I like the atmosphere you've accomplished in the second watercolor. The drawings are wonderful, I love. They are simple and accurate drawings. congratulations

  5. Yes, I did put my address on the back of the envelope. Let's hope it makes it to you.

  6. Thank you Ricardo! I always appreciate feedback, be it good or bad. 🙂
