kitchen counter sketch book

I bought peaches five days ago. Still ripening...

There is nothing more anticipated and enjoyed than summer's bounty of sweet Maine corn. You fight your way to the gigantic pile at the grocery store, manuver your cart as close as possible to pick the best ears and then the wild shucking goes on right there into a large bin. I like to make a raw corn salad. The raw thing freaks most people out so I just don't tell them it's not cooked...

It is sometimes hard for me to put into words how much I love this scruffy little dog, except when she is standing on the back of the couch barking at everything and nothing...

I love these! The colors are great. What are you using on the tinted paper?

Hi Barbara,

I am using watercolors and trying my hand at gouache for the first time. Since the paper is tinted it seems to need more of an opaque application to get the bright colors I tend to gravitate to.
