Oops .. I have neglected my blog for a few days…so to catch up (from today backwards)
Sorry – another paint theme EDiM. The last thing I bought was food but it is all eaten… so I had to go back to Friday’s visit to the Artscene!
This sketch started out as a controlled ink and pitt pen grey tonal study of my empty pans… (yes my current paint tin has a combination of half and full pans) but then I just realised that I haven’t scraped or splashed for a while… and I sure was in the mood for it! SO MUCH FUN! Particularly the scraping part…
I think I need to make sure that I remember to scrape more regularly!
some random notes (thanks to Jenn for the new ‘credit card’ – this was its first use!) and I also had a wonderful few hours with Helen from Melbourne and some really special botanical artists. Was talking to Beth about making sure that their was joy in her work- look at this piece of hers http://www.rbgsyd.nsw.gov.au/__data/assets/image/0008/127268/McAnoy_Hydrangea_macrophylla.jpg
So just to warm up I quickly did today and tomorrows EDiM (I don’t sketch on Sunday so need to get ahead) The blue fireplace detail in the background is part of what I am about to paint… ok here goes… sigh, deep breath, I can do it!
