Change one painting...start another

This is a painting for my unborn niece. It is a painting of the game CANDYLAND. The board of this game is quite complicated and full of color and three dimentional art. This is proving to be a nice challange. I will post the progress of it.






This is a painting that I painted several weeks ago. I decided to add some more depth to the box by darkening up parts of it. I also relisted it on ebay starting bid of only $1.00 so if you are interested, you may want to check it out....don't wait on this one! You might get a heck of a deal.
SOLD!

Watercolor DVD



I didn't get a painting done today because I spent the day editing the next DVD for my step by step series. This is my first one featuring an artist other then myself. Christine Waara is the artist and she is an exceptional watercolorist. Her approach can be used by anyone wanting to learn how to watercolor or to improve their skills if they already watercolor. We are taking preorders right now. The release date is August 10th. Anyone interested in ordering now will not only save $6.00 off the regular price but will also get free shipping. Click here to go to my STEP BY STEP DVDS site. You can check out my drawing and pastel dvds too.
