Sock monkeys have meaning in my life. I love to draw them as well. 
Soft tones with gentle strokes; appropriate to the nature of these creatures.

Sunny day today in Seattle, summer finally has arrived.

More watercolor evaluation:
Brush strokes are those best with intention, literally 'less (stroke) is more'.

The grapes in my backyard are starting to fruit;
the birds are pleased. 

More study required of these vines, more definition perhaps

day one: painting with intention

water color and grey days:
finding inspiration: Using more intense color to a composition is critical, evoking an agricultural landscape, lush and nourishing. The grey days we are having lately in Seattle forces a palette, softer and with grey tones?
