What's in my Studio... and Happy Anniversary WOYWW!

Happy Fifth Anniversary to WOYWW - What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday, hosted by Julia at stamping-ground.blogspot.com.

This week I'm playing around with gesso and watercolor paintings again. The one below I had started and finally added the green leaves last week. Unfortunately in acrylic paint rather than watercolor. O.o
I have a small acrylic set in small tubes that look very similar to my inexpensive watercolor set. And I used the acrylic by mistake... on three different watercolor paintings. Sheesh! 
I'm actually amazed I got it looking watercolor-ish, however am not sure how it will work out from here. I've added a layer of watercolor over the top and we'll see what happens when it dries. 

This is the Lewisia WIP - I've added a layer of yellow watercolor (yes, it IS watercolor), let it dry and then added a layer of blue. It's almost dry and ready for the next layer. I realized that I forgot to leave the blue off where the petals will go... *rolls eyes*  
I apparently love a challenge. :D 


What are you working on today?  To see what other folks around the world are doing, check out Julia's What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday. And while you're there, wish Julia and WOYWW a happy anniversary!

As a total non-painter, your flowers and leaves look great together, to me! I hope the other piece turns out the way you want it, too. Have a lovely week, Chris # 15 xx
