This was painted from a tutorial by Sarah Cray on Let?s Make Art?s YouTube site. The paper is a sketchbook made with cotton salvage which is quite a challenge to paint on.

The original sketch for this was sent out to members of the Let's Make Art group for Mother's Day. I painted my version using paints made by a small business in Colorado called Ruby Mountain Paint Co. For years I had been searching for the perfect pink paint for flowers, and finally found it!

I often sit with a sketchbook on my lap when watching tv a little substitute for drawing from life. Using a very thin paper sketchbook (Maruman Croquis), my fountain pens glide across this smooth paper. It is a pleasure for me to draw in it. Of course watercolor is tricky to use on this paper, but I'm not trying for a painting, but just add color because I love doing so.

Paul Clark provides a free watercolor tutorial on YouTube every Wednesday. I have been following those for the last few years. This was the tutorial from April 24. I learn something each time I follow one of these tutorials. And even if my painting is a total mess, I look for a point of joy that I can be proud of. In this one, I like the fisherman's reflection in the water.

As our planned hike up Mt Cook in New Zealand was impossible due to poor weather, my wife replaced Mt Cook with Roy?s Peak, near Wanaka a day later. So on a beautiful January morning we dragged? our teenage daughters up this steep mountain for 4 hours surrounded by stunning views. I wanted to mark their achievement and resilience as both found the climb a challenge.

I have always adored the vibrant color palette of the Macaw's feathers for many years. This is my first attempt at painting this species of bird, and it was a fun learning experience.
