Calypso Moon Artist May

This is the challenge for Calypso Moon Artists -May. The Royal Wedding
I have painted a vignette of scenes from the day in water-colour

I have just be told of two other challenge sites . That makes four sites I can be involved with, it is great to have so much stimulation . The first of the two new sites is A Day Not Wasted .The challenge was a Venitian backwater scene - lovely - but I had to put in some people - otherwise it would have been rather sterile .

For the February Calypso challenge the subject was "Landscape"
I painted a triptych of "Milly on the Chart" a lovely area we walk the dog.

The other site is Calypso Moon Artist Movement- their site suggests a subject and you make your mind up as to what you will do with it . This month the subject was a moment in time with figures . I chose a scene of some cyclists arriving in a small Italian village all dying to cool off with an ice-cream , we had been there as tourists, but the ice-cream was just as appealing.
