Well, seeing as how this little watercolor (it's 9" x 12") took me the better part of four days, I guess completing my 365 projects in 365 days is getting less likely. I can live with that.
I drew the image in pencil first, went over that with a brown watercolor pencil, painted a wash of water over the whole 'dirt' part, then painted in the sky, the seedling, then all the little spaces between the roots.
This is such a great quote from Margaret Atwood. That's my handwriting, made bold and filled in with paint.
