Watercolor Painting of a Golden Pear and Feathers

I am finally beginning a new painting! It has been a long time! Since the first of July to be exact! I fell off a bike on July 11th  and tore alot of ligaments in my left foot. It was awful and I also hit my head on the side of my old injury. Then three weeks later because I was so unstable I fell off the deck and did in the other foot! Egads! I felt so defeated by this I sort of gave up and did not paint or do anything. Just getting around was so major but I should have been painting. I feel bad I did not.
So anyway, with that and low white counts and auto immune stuff I have been struggling to have the energy to do most anything. I am doing better and I finally can drive my car and feel secure about that. I still have to be careful as we have ice now. It will be awhile yet before I am completely healed.
So I have begun something I am not even sure of! ha! I set up the display on my art book and hung it by strings against a wall. It feels overwhelming as of yet as I am not sure how to even draw certain areas but will keep stuggling with it. I have found if I have most of my shapes in place and get a light wash of color
on them I can usually see more clearly what I have to do. So this is where I am at right now...slowly it will begin to make sense..I HOPE! ha!
