Please scroll down to the bottom of this post for Midweek Blues and Watery Wednesday:)
That itch that many have this time of year to clean, paint, remodel? I don't have it!
What I do have is that itch to learn new techniques, try out new color combinations, especially new brushes, new paper!
When I close up this Cotman watercolor palette, it's smaller than my hand;
with my watercolor block it easily fits in most of my purses/bags
Usually I like to paint with big brushes, large size papers, canvas, what have you,
until that one year
I gave in to the impulse to buy this, because at that time it was NEW. And I haven't been sorry, for whenever I foresee that light packing would be necessary because of hiking, or just being a short time on one spot,
I'll put what you see on the pic above in a shoulderbag.
Blue tape on my brushes, because one time these brushes with transparent handle ended up in my garbage bag! Ugh, I'm learning:)

Can you imagine balancing a big palette and paper block while painting on this bridge? Since I dropped my other bigger palette in a fast moving river in Yosemite one year, I'm more careful about where I put my painting gear!
By the way, hubby took the pic above when he with the rest of the family came back from their hike to the top of the mountain. So I'm not posing, but really painting:). That was last week, so it could go under the heading of Spring jitters
This is what I was painting, which is underneath the bridge
That is on the side of the bridge.

So far, so good. I'll give you the end result of my watercolor sometime:)
