Had a 4 day vacation in New Orleans ~ What a blast!! Have to get back there soon!!!! Bought a little Winsor Newton Coleman water color kit and a moleskin watercolor journal along that fits nicely in my little green purse: Best decision ever!
This one was done waiting in LAX with 50 mins to kill~ Of course the buses and planes all move around constantly~ Frustrating but super fun as well.
First day in the French Quarter! On the balcony seating of the "Royal Oyster house"! Amazing, gigantic oysters, great street music, martini and watercolor are probably my favorite combination of a day well spent~
Brunch in "The Country Club"!! This little patio seating is so heavenly, I had to pull out the set just cause! :P
Cemetery in the Garden District~ Peaceful, Hot, Serene~ I did three pieces here and they are the ones I like the most~ Gotta do more next time I am here!
Oak Alley Plantation! This one is frustrating as hell because the location is soooooo beautiful yet we had so little time painting here! Next time i will get a bed in the hotel on the premise and just paint for 3 days straight~ The oak trees are so gorgeous, i am just going to paint all of them~ :D
At the Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop! It was getting so dark that 30 mins into the painting I can no longer tell the colors I am putting down! Had to use flash to take a pic of this when done! Fun tho~
At the St. Louis Cemetery No. 1~!! Again, gorgeous!! Maybe with a little too much tourist traffic, but I do tend to blame EVERYTHING but myself when the painting doesn't turn out as good as i would like it to be! Must do more Sargent copies! >:(
