7x10 watercolor of radishes.
I have a full painting day ahead but nothing in mind for subjects. When this happens I sometimes find it helpful to do some small studies or thumbnails out of my head just to get some bearing before I head out. If I haven't thought about what is an appealing subject before setting out I tend to drive around in circles and come home having done nothing.
The radishes (or something similar) I'll save for when I get back home. The tiny thumbnail sketches will be my inspiration this morning: a flag, an Iris, a park BBQ scene.
