A pinecone and bits of nature, collected on my walk this afternoon. The sleeve of my kimono-style robe accidentally dragged across some paint in the magnolia’s stem. I’m happy with the pinecone. They’re fun to paint. I used my brown paint more than I have been in the past. Learning to let the brush stroke do more on the paper and heavily loading the paint on the brush for the first and often only pass, working very wet on dry. Watercolor and pencil.
