 I added a little more work on the demonstration piece which I did at the watercolor class last wednesday. I think it was enough work for this painting. I will take this to the class on the next wednesday.

In the afternoon I painted new watercolor. I finished it quickly.

In the Old Sketch book

In an old sketch book I found calligraphy I wrote long time ago. I studied it for couple of years because at that time I was sign painter for living. I was practicing calligraphy using sketch book. The old sketch book brought me a lot of memory.
