Bee Balm ~ Watercolour Wednesday

My Bee Balm plant was abuzz this morning with Bumblebees, which Maggie the dog was trying to catch and eat while I was sketching! I think I got through to her that it wasn't such a good idea!

Here is a quick sketch I got done in between chasing the dog away and dodging bees!

Wetcanvas Watercolour Ontario Meet Part 2 ~ Watercolour Wednesday

Part of the fun at the Watercolour Meet was a guessing game. We were challenged ahead of time to paint a watercolour of a scene around the Dundas, Ontario area. There were 13 paintings submitted and it was really tough trying to figure out who painted what! The winner got 7 correct.  That person got to choose their favourite original watercolour from the bunch to keep. Second place chose next, and third after that. Once the first three chose, the paintings  were turned upside down and we randomly got to choose. I was lucky to receive a wonderful watercolour of a waterfall by Ursula (Uschi) Rodrigues.

Here is my submission of a little run-down shed in a conservation area:

These are some of the prints that were part of the game:

And here is the painting that I won! A lovely waterfall.
