It's been a relatively quiet week since coming home from holidays. Just as we'll really as I've done nothing all week except cough, splutter, drink tea, watch Offspring, whine a little, and cough some more... but I do it with grace and charm of course!
I think I'm getting pretty good at this actually - but really I could do better , after all I've had the masters (my teens) to learn from... I havn't yet asked for a blankie, or tomato soup for every meal, or negged on all my chores and responsibility, or given vivid descriptions on the colour and consistency of my snot on an hourly basis, etc etc.
So I confess Painting has been minimal this week... but I can share this watetcolour sketch of a terrace cottage in Carlton, Melbourne. I took some time to get the SHADOWS (for Artist Playroom!) right under the awning, and under the chair, and plants. In looking at it now I could even go deeper in some areas to add depth.
Traveling, with the expectation of doing some art is relatively new to me. Usually I end up being so preoccupied by what's happening I never do anything... Or I take too much and it gets left behind in the apartment! So this time I was determined to take just enough and as little as possible so that I would sketch straight from my handbag.
The solution was using the watetcolour palette booklet I made, aqua brush pens, and an artist Pitt pen, and small landscape sketch book... More details to follow :-)
Happy paint party Friday!
