Watercolor Words and Wanderings

July is zooming by….Here are the birthday cards I promised to post from last week..

The Dorcas Library in Prospect Harbor is offering a S.T.E.A.M. camp and I offered to teach water color. We are making zig-zag books of the things we see or hear or smell on a nature walk. Here are some example pages I have done.

Tried to capture this boat race from Grindstone Neck the other day…I like the whiteness of the sails…I almost got this all done in one sitting. I was working fast! I just want to adjust the darkness of the trees closest to the viewer and sharpen up the sails.


I am not sure If I had shown this Muster Field Farm painting. I was attracted to the burgundy color of plants growing in a line. You cannot really see from the picture- but they are in there!

I found these orchids growing on my nature walk…

And also these pitcher plants…
