Mushrooms


We have had mushrooms growing in our lawn, even with all this heat! It either means we are over watering or we have some pretty tough mushrooms! Randy got our camera and took some close up shots of these little beauties. They are so wonderful and unique. They come up in a day and are gone almost as quickly. I think they are a challenge to paint since they are so overly simple and not very colorful. The challenge here is to make them interesting. I had a piece of left over primed watercolor paper. Although it only had a green wash on it I found it hard to capture any good light areas because of the green. I will paint these again but here is my quick watercolor painting of Mushrooms.

These are fun! I look forward to seeing more. Sometimes our most interesting subjects can be those things which we overlook most of the time. Good eye!

I like your mushroom painting, and as far as mushrooms go, you have made them more interesting here! Not everything (sadly) can be as bright and yummy as those cupcakes! I'm still drooling thinking about that one!
