(Painted for day 22 of 30 of the Leslie Saeta paint 30 paintings in 30 days challenge.)
This painting was inspired by photo taken in Acapulco at a Joan McKasson workshop sponsored by Flying Colors Art Workshops in 2006. I could never paint like Joan's wonderful watercolor florals but it is a trip to remember at this very old villa on the water. Johanna was a cutie hauling us to destinations in this ancient van.
The food was fabulous and resulted in a cookbook that is available on the Flying Colors site. Linda Doll was there recording her photos. I'd also taken a watercolor and Photoshop class with her.
One of the time drains on doing the 30/30 is searching your files for suitable subjects to paint and finding hundreds of photos you want to stop, look, and remember at each one but it's a plus when you get to relive the trips and remember the people. My watercolor painting has about ceased except for watercolor sketchbook journaling but the florals will work in many mediums.
