My favorite item of day 8 is "St. Thomas".
This lovely island is where my husband and I vacationed for our honeymoon and we had a wonderful time visiting. The weather, the palm trees, the clear water and snorkeling, the food and.... ahhhh, just being on an island was fantastic!
I created this ATC today in watercolor. I closed my eyes and pictured the view from the island in my mind (we "chased down" the sunset around the island on our last evening there) and began applying color. No sketching, no retracting... just straight color, brush and paper. It was actually really intimidating to work in this fashion, but certainly a learning experience. The exercise, like all the previous ones before it, also brought back a lot of wonderful memories. =)
