Here's a painting done from the introduction of Karlyn Holman's book Watercolor Without Boundaries.
The exercise was to do a one color painting. I used Faber Castell's Sanquine watercolor pencil and ink. Done on Strathmore Watercolor 140# paper, 5 x 7 inches.
An interesting exercise.

Thought I would try to start the new year off right by greeting it with this card.
Size: post card. Done on 90# watercolor paper.
Symbol in upper right corner is word for Tiger. Red seal/stamp says Good Luck. Symbol in lower right is my name in Chinese

May try it on acrylic or oil canvas next time. It was too difficult to get what I wanted.
Size 4 x 6 inches using Liquitex acrylics.

This was for a challenge for a monochrome painting in the APC group I belong.

This is ATC size on 140# watercolor paper.
Took the paint directly off the sticks and mixed several colors in a little palette. Didn't have any burnt sienna, so improvised with what I had. The are very strong colors.

This was a bit of a challenge with the oils. It's hard enough with watercolors. Next try will be acrylics.

I did one similar to this ATC size using watercolor pencils. The background was a bit different. This one was quite a challenge. I normally don't care to do still life's, but it was an assignment.

I'm taking an on-line acrylics course from Andy Walker at http://www.learntodo.co.uk . This is a self paced course with 6 sections and 24 parts to it.
The first lesson was doing a color wheel, which I have done many, so didn't put it up here.
In this exercise, we were to do a value drawing of a scene from the course. So, this is my attempt. In the next lesson, I will be adding color to this painting.
I'm also taking his watercolor course which is divided into 12 sections with 32 parts. Since I have done some watercolor in the past, I did not do any of the exercises in the first 2 lessons of this course. But will be adding paintings from the next lessons.
