Sun Striped Shadows

June is not giving us a chance to ease into summer this year. It seems to only have one thermometer setting—HOT! In order to keep the house a little cooler and not have the air running constantly, I keep the blinds closed when the sun is on the west side of the house. One day I was fascinated with the shadows the blinds were casting on my plant.

I wanted to see if I could recreate that with watercolor. Here is what I came up with:

As you go through your day, keep your eyes open for unusual shadows the sun may be casting. Take a photo and use it for inspiration for an art project.
