Watercolour Poppies and Blue Ridge Mountains

Two weeks flew by without being able to post my 'usual Fridays'...It was hectic here with my daughter's Arangettam (first dance performance under the Guru's guidance), participating in an Art and Craft Fair, my health taking a down-spin and my hubby's visit (which was exciting as we took a tour...a traditional one...down the lane through centuries...which will be featured here soon!!!) to attend our daughter's performance. I will share some pictures in the next post...need to organize a few of things first!

Sorry, if you had dropped and found nothing here :(

A few days back I tried a couple of  YouTube tutorials which I would like to share here. One was a floral and the other a landscape. 

The first one by Joanna Boon Thomas and here's what she demonstrates in her video tutorial. The best part of it was that it was an exclusive mom-daughter exploration...we both tried our hand at it :)

Do you try such tutorials? These are the first of mine and I enjoyed trying it :)
