Today’s ICAD prompt is yellow. Oh, goody, I thought, my house is yellow; I’ll paint my house.
Actually, our house is a buttery cream. The first yellow I mixed was too vibrant, so I tried to tone it down with a little beige. Then it was too dark. I tried adding white to it, but now it looks like a mustard stain. Oh well.
It’s hard to take a good picture of our house because there are a lot of trees in the way. But here it is at an angle. You can’t see much of the architecture, but you can get an idea of the actual color.
I know I didn’t post an index card yesterday–I just wanted to spend my time writing.
What I didn’t realize was that I didn’t post one on Sunday, either. Just forgot. Oh, well.
Today’s watercolor is a response to ICAD prompt yellow and theme circles, spheres, and mandalas. The title refers to July in Arizona.
I am participating in the Index-Card-a-Day Challenge and World Watercolor Month. For the rest of July, I intend to paint a little watercolor every day, just big enough to fit on an index card.
