Everyday Matters Challenge # 250 - Draw Something You Got For Free

This little artificial plant is pot is only about 6" high and 7" wide. To be so small it is none the less become one of  my favorite treasures. It brightens up any corner where it is placed. I just happened to be where someone was cleaning out stuff and I came home with it. I am glad of this challenge because I have wanted to draw and piant this little treasure for a while. Now I have this little memory captured. This was done with watercolor pencils on watercolor paper in my new homemade journal 11 x 7 1/2" which has watercolor and sketching paper in it.

Tuscany -- Watercolor

I saw this in an art book, and fell in love with this adorable little town. There is something appealing and serene about the Italian countryside. The soft colors also caught my imagination, and I just had to paint it.  This is a real place, but the name of the town was not given in the book.  This was an enjoyable piece to do.
