This is my Illustration Friday Entry for Drifting. It is inspired by a book I had as a child "Tilly the Turtle".

This is a painting from a course I am taking at www.learntodo.com. Working from a photo we had to paint an under painting of black, grays and white. Then paint over it. I found it really helped with the lights and shadows and various shades of green in the painting. I also learned I need to spread my color around. I was happy with how it came out. I felt it had more depth and was more interesting to look at then my other paintings.

These are a couple of water colors I did recently for a on line water color course I am taking. The one with the squares was a fun exercise. We divided the sheet into nine squares and cut out the middle square. Then we were to either drop or purposely pick a section of a water color we liked and try to emulate it in one of the squares. I was happy with the results because I struggle getting light into my water colors and this helped. I particularly liked the little lady bug square, which was also one of the hardest.
