While working on my last blog post about Vinita Pappas's online watercolor class Create 38, I realized I haven't posted two of my favorite paintings. These watercolors were both painted for the online class. The rural views that Vinita has near her in Oregon are so appealing to me to paint.
The first piece below of an Oregon field is a recent one and a favorite. It was fun to paint and I think it was successful. The piece below featuring hay bales was also rewarding as well as a challenge. My first try at hay bales! I find a lots of inspiration as well as challenge in these views. Next I need to see this beautiful area in person!
