The coming month should be interesting.  The Northland Art League is holding two events in June.  A quick paint on the 2nd and a pleine air 2-7th.

Marc Holmes invited everyone to make 30 watercolor painting in 30 days during June.   #30x30DirectWatercolor2018   Already people are showing their work and it is beautiful. 

I intend to give these events a good try.   Have never attempted a quick paint or pleine air, so it should be interesting.

30 watercolor paintings in 30 days may be too hard.  Can only try.  As a warm up, here is a little painting done without predrawing.  Direct watercolor, the pencil lines were already on the paper from an earlier failed drawing.

The word for this month's Art League meeting was "cityscape".  I didn't get a drawing or painting done, but I did make four trading cards.

flower painting for Art League


The prompt for this month was "garden".  I painted flowers because it was much too cold outdoors to do anything in the garden.

It's "oneweek100people2018" week.  I am not going to make the goal of drawing /sketching 100 people this week.  But here are three people I drew while watching the Oscars.
