Guacamole

"Guacamole"

Watercolor

I thought the ingredients for one of my favorite foods would make a fun painting.  I stuck a stick through the tomato, avocado and onion to stack them and created my still life composition.  I hope I'm not leaving out any major ingredients.  Of course you have to add salt and pepper to taste but I didn't feel like I wanted them in my painting.

It feels good to be back to my watercolors.  The paintings from the last few weeks have been a good warm up and with this week's painting, I feel more in the old groove.  I did most of this painting on saturated paper.  I'm still experimenting with this technique and don't think that it's easy for me yet but I am enjoying the process.

  2. What a fun composition and still life idea. Just shows what can happen when one thinks outside the box. Glad you are going now that it's 2016. Few more of painting in this style and it will be comfortable. Finally dry?
