I’ve been working quite a bit on this one and wanted to finish the 8th watercolour on January 8th, but it was not to be:

here on a few steps that I’ve taken to get here and still not sure I’m finished….. If you disagree and want to purchase this just like this, please convo me and I will stop….anyway:

The first picture I took was after I had sketched it out, added misket and added the washy background:

Then I took one after I had taken off the misket and started adding all the blues I’m using, well just 3 blues:

And here is one I just couldn’t finish on the night of the 8th:

April springtime in northern New Mexico photographs

April 12, 2014

Starting my day driving  up to the ski valley, I caught this Red-breasted Robin high in the red willows behind a snow covered green willow tree.  What a delight

was taking a co-worker home I headed up into El Salto in a typical springtime day of snow showers interspersed with sunshine:

all the sap is rising around here and it’s turning everything rich red and saturated greens pushing through the gold colors left over from autumn and winter:

The whole hillside is bleating with sheep calls (which unfortunately I was too far away from) and the birdcall was as plentiful as the snow flurries:

the sun shining and glistening off of all the rich colors every where I looked:

old fruit trees are everywhere

I still get excited every single time I spot a horse

Hope you liked my photography story of El Salto, New Mexico on a snowy day in April.

As always if you see anything you can’t live without on your own walls,  just let me know and I can invoice you easy-peasy.

peace n abundance,

CheyAnne

And birds, I love me some birds.  This little guy was inspired by a Field Sparrow that came to our feeders one day.  And only one day, I haven’t seen it since.  Must have been migrating through.

If you ever want to buy any of my art I will pay shipping to your place.  Each picture ought to take you to the link to buy it and then I will reimburse your shipping costs, easy-peasy.

Have a beautiful and lovely day,

CheyAnne
