"New Year's Eve Morning" 12-31-08

This is a tiny little watercolor painting I did on New Year's Eve morning, while drinking my coffee and looking out the back studio window. It measures a mere 2.5 x 3.5". You can see below a photo I took while working, but I put the tin down to take the photo. I painted it while standing and holding this little set-up in my left hand. It's a pencil case that I stick my "Altoids" watercolor kit in using blue tack or sticky tack, and the same for the tiny watercup. I also use the tack to hold two brushes at the ready on the side; I use the metal area under the paint kit to mix colors. This set up works well for small paintings and studies.
