An Abundance of WIP's

 'Powerhouse'  work in progress
7 x 10 inch watercolor

'Sleepy smitten'  work in progress
8 x 10 inch watercolor

It seems like I have lots of works in progress right now. These two, and a colored pencil piece, and a larger commission too. But those last two are still in the drawing stage. 

Do you ever feel like you have so much to do that you just kind of sit there, not knowing where to start? Yeah. That's how I feel today.

At least I am fortified with chocolate. Now I can conquer anything. Huzzah?! ;)

  9. Hello Crystal:) Long live the chocolate!! I love that little baby WIP. So cute. The horses are great. Do you use tracing paper for this one? Take it easy and enjoy all of your WIP's at the time:)

    1. Thanks Renate! :) No, I didn't use any tracing paper for these. The only thing I use tracing paper for is if I want to trace a small sketch that I did in my sketchbook to turn into a painting. Sometimes those little spontaneous sketches turn out so nice that I want to try and capture that same thing in a painting.

  10. Absolutely know that feeling--don't know where to start! My brain just shuts down. Lovely WIPs though!

  11. Well, having lots on the go is a really good thing! It means that you are inspired :0)
    And that is so much better than having only one thing on the go, or worse still, nothing! That's when I feel really lost.
    Anyway - eat the chocolate and then just pick one that you'd like to get completed first. It's clear they will all be beautiful! That baby is adorable - It doesn't look like there is much left to do! :0)
