Picture a Day #89 – The Promise of Spring

It’s raining again. I keep my eye on the two tulips that are starting to bloom, to remind myself that spring will arrive eventually. In the meantime, I have captured some springtime with watercolor paper and Prismacolor pencil.

This is the first step in my most recent watercolor project. Rather than sit in the rain and wind in front of my house, I took a photo in between showers, loaded it onto my computer, and set it as my desktop background. Not exactly en plein air, but I can see the real thing out my window. Does that count? Hopefully, tomorrow I will be ready to paint!
