081229 Monet Take4

Another visit to the Art Gallery to see the current Monet exhibition. I don’t normally go to an exhibition so many times – but different friends wanted to see it with me. Each time is different – this time I met my first flickr friend in real life – The colourguru.

So cool that we have so many mutual friends.
A quick sketch of the Art Gallery while I was waiting….

Like most things I do – I did this quickly and had lots of fun. Did this when I got home from the catalogue without looking at it too closely – my favourite painting in the exhibition.

081230 T2 Teahouse

A rather crazy spread that I did in a tearoom in my local shopping centre(mall). Been meaning to stop and have a earl grey tea there one day – it was wonderful. Pity I couldn’t paint at the time so added colour once back home.I did try finger painting but it was a bit too hard and messy!
Is it obvious that I was having loads and loads of fun when I did this?
I will have to go back again sometime soon.

    Delightful! I do enjoy your work, especially, how you combine the visual with the text. Great job.

    Ditto what Susans said...my, do you have a way with composition.

    Great sketches. I don't think you overdid the ink on your teapots at all. They look wonderful. I love the sketch of the picture you liked at the showing that you did in color.

    Happy New Year.
