Neighborhood Watch

12 x 7-1/2 Watercolor
This is my first time taking on Karin Jurick's challenge at DSFDF. I took her advice and did some sketching of the figure before starting the actual painting which helped in getting the figure right. I tried to focus on his weight as it settles into the chair.

Pieces of Amy

9-1/2 x 7-1/2 watercolor

Work at the regular job has been demanding leaving little time to paint. But finally, I got the chance to sit down and get back to the passion with this painting. It's a gift for Amy Fread, an artist who makes beautiful pottery. These 3 pieces are gifts that she made for my family.
