On a visit to my sister's this last weekend I saw a painting I had done years ago. I had given it to my mother and when she passed away, my sister ended up with it. One of my acrylics that I had forgotten all about.

Working on all kinds of different subjects should allow me to find new techniques and experiment with ones I already know. A quick watercolor like this duckling shows me how to use a limited palette.

More paint splashed on my watercolor attempt. Not even close to what I had in mind, but I don't hate it yet. I had planned on doing a very loose technique, but I always seem to tighten up and restrict the flow!

I found another fun site in my Internet travels. I came across it because it has good explanations of the the various etching techniques. The site belongs to Rick Lyttle and it also contains a number of his prints. He lives in Northern California and creates Landscape, Still Life and Whimsical prints that are great.

Here we go again. I started a watercolor painting as another learning/practice session. I'm using a photo of my son and grandson and right now, it actually looks a little like them. Just the base wash so it will be interesting to see where it goes from here.
