Watercolor Beach Painting, Migration 13086, (Beach Couple) Day 28 of the Leslie Saeta 30/30 challenge, ArtByte Collage Tutorial, Book of Poems, Dreams of the Turtle King by Denise Bossarte. Illustrated by Texas Contemporary Artist Nancy Standlee

Migration 13086
11x10 watercolor, pen and ink
Bockingford Rough 140 lb paper, Nakimi Falcon pen, Lexington Gray Ink

My paintings are available on the Daily Paintworks gallery page HERE.

I have an ArtByte, an affordable collage tutorial available HERE.  

This painting is an illustration for a book of poems, Dreams of the Turtle King, written by Denise Bossarte that should be available on Amazon around first of December, 2013.  Denise is a Texas photographer and a member of Artists of Texas. 
This is illustration No. 5 and I will have 19 more to do. I'm working on these each day, posting them on my Daily Paintworks Gallery and website and Facebook, sending them to Denise to be scanned, and matting in a 14x11 mat and shipping when sold, and allow 2 weeks for the painting to be mailed if you purchase. The first 5 are on the way to Houston to be scanned.
The teenage couple on the beach:
This is an interesting and a new project for me, reading the written words in a poem and translating the images and stories that develop into an image on paper. The words here that called to me were teenage, skateboard, girl and sleeping bag. When you read the poem maybe you will "see" another image from a different line in the poem. 

 To see work by other artists who are following along with the 30/30 go to the Leslie Saeta blog. I have joined hundreds of other artists for this September painting challenge and we are trying to paint and post a painting each day. It doesn’t have to be a finished piece but some piece of art each day. On some of the larger commission pieces I have posted portions over a 3 day period. On the smaller pieces I can do one a day and to finish out the challenge I will be posting these watercolors. Only two more post days to go. I think she is planning another one in January and I would suggest you get to painting!
