Plein Air Watercolor Finals!!

I know it's been a while since I last posted....
I've just been exhausted trying to balance school, a part-time job and a children's book illustration gig.......which of course is under "confidentiality agreement".

Anyhoo, here are the two pieces I've been working on for my watercolor class:
(both about 14' by 20', watercolor)

this one literally drove me insane! I don't think I'll be doing something as "patterny" anytime soon. I referenced it from a picture I took from the SF zoo. I might touch up the moss at the back.

Got to say....one of my most proud piece yet....I had fun painting it too. If only i had nothing else to do but paint whenever I want...... the reference picture was taken at the farmer's market at the Ferry Building. I still have the tubal-wear and a box of peaches left to do....

I think this is the first time I handed in work "incomplete". The more I do watercolor, it seems the less i have a good estimation on how much time I spend on it.... Maybe I never painted something as complicated and as large as this....or maybe I'm just tired all the time....or my OCD is getting worse....
