Daily Painter Week Eight

We just got home last night from our trip to Pinehurst, North Carolina, visiting our friends and checking out Pinehurst Course #2 where the Open was played.  We had a wonderful time and I did this first sketch while sitting in the shade.  It was over 90 degrees on Wednesday and getting out of the sun was most welcome to us Vermonters....

"Pinehurst #2 - the 18th tee"

Our hostess, Anne, has a beautiful garden and these are some of her flowers....

"Anne's Lilies"
5 1/2" x 7 1/2" - marker and colored pencil on watercolored paper

It was good to get back into the studio this morning after a week away.  The sweet little Siberian iris are blooming now.  They are much smaller than their cousins I painted last week.  

"Siberian Iris"
4" x 6" - watercolor and collage

I collages gold paper into the watercolors but it is difficult to appreciate the glow in the photos....
