This was my final assignment for my watercolor class. It was a freebie where we could paint what ever we wanted. I choose dogwoods because I have always liked them and it is the flower my wife and I used for our wedding.
I thoroughly enjoyed this class. Don't think I  am a natural painter but I did learn a few things and hope to be able to find the time to keep painting.

Mountainous Landscape

My painting class is coming to an end. This is the second to last assignment. For this one we had to copy a mast work. Unfortunately I have lost the site where I got the original image from so I can not remember who it was by.

Summer Day

It was a great day to visit Lewis Ginter and relax in the shade by the sandbox and splash pad.

Image from Ansel Adams in Color book. I certainly do not do it justice. I thought it was hard to take a picture with clouds like Adams. It is even harder for me to paint them.

Early Morning Jog

Git out for a short 2.36 mile jig this morning. I'm hoping I can keep this up.
