DSFDF challenge—Summer vegetables

I decided to give Karin Jurik's Different Strokes for Different Folks challenge, again, before my everything got packed. I was in a hurry because things are a little chaotic here and I am running very late for our last weekend in Bali visiting friends in other parts of the island. Another tough watercolor challenge for me as I constantly struggle with not overworking the painting and ending up with "the dreaded mud". However, this is a great thing to do because it pushes me out of my comfort zone and I have to be very brave to be posted along with other very talented painters.  
I'm really late now...gotta run.

This is beautiful - certainly not 'mud'! What a lovely loose style you have and, as Deborah says, it all looks to fresh.

It's beautiful Jennifer--the red of the tomatoes is perfect, and I love the touches of pure blue and how you didn't add much background. And with all that packing going on!

Sharon said...

Wow! This is just beautiful Jennifer. So loose and fresh. I like the touch of red under the corn.

Sharon said...

And the colors in the shadow are wonderful, too.
