Thistle, 2018, professional watercolors on 184# wet media recycled, acid free paper, copyrighted with all rights reserved by Jean Krueger
This studies a small thistle I found while on a walk. The paper it’s painted on is a Strathmore product, that has a tan-ish cast and contains 30% recycled material. It’s the first time I’ve painted on it…it’s okay. I prefer white papers but it’s nice for experimenting with color and imagery.

This studies a dried Canada Thistle I found while taking a walk. It’s drawn with ink…I think this is the first drawing I’ve posted in that media.
A few weeks back while teaching beginners watercolor and pastel classes I became aware how REALLY important drawing skills are to any person learning to paint.
I now want to learn to draw better.
