Can't stop experimenting!

April 23, 2014 | 2 Comments

Of course the first sketch I do on new paper is a teacup one! And I know the idea of loose sheets of paper is so that I can do something with it (ie. part with it) but this one I stuck in my sketchbook…hopeless I know!

A tea present and granulating experiments

A discussion over coffee with a sketching friend today.. and a great new book (Urban Watercolor Sketching by Felix Scheinberger)…..

AND I have another new idea of a different way to work….so time for the old faithful yellow cup to pose for another crazy watercolour experiment! This is more about working method rather than the application of the paint…but I am not quite sharing that yet!

Sometimes I just wish my brain would be content to have a few days off… is hard to keep up with all the ideas that are bouncing off the wall at the moment!

  • Liz Steel says:

    yay! that is so fantastic – keep it up and never be embarrassed! Just learn to love the process of sketching!

  • So awesome to see your enthusiasm, Liz. It is catching too…I've even done a few sketchbook pages, though nothing as pretty as your work. I tend to embarrass myself and the sketchbook gets put back on the shelf for awhile.
