Acrylic on Bockingford watercolour paper


Continuing with same ideas as last still working on painting but rather like this very quick sketch I did beforehand!

I gave up on the half strawberry and ate it...delicious!

I have been inspired recently by an american artist who's blog I discovered by chance - I love the simplicity & light/dark contrast of his still life paintings.

So today I have attempted painting on a smaller scale than usual and to use less water with my paints....

It's a start...

Managed to fit in some sketching whilst the family played football on the beach...not great but not too dreadful either!?!

Still haven't managed to get back to last painting BUT have had a lovely hols with family!!

Blue Flowers, Wine & Reflections

I did paint last week but as I want to make a few final adjustments I haven't taken a photo yet...not sure when I'll get time to do this now that it is the school holidays!

I am very pleased to say that I have actually painted once a week since half term (AND my ironing is done & my house is clean!!)
I have also spent a bit of time browsing other artists' work on the internet & have found some of them really inspiring.
After the Easter holidays I will do my best to keep up my weekly painting, but would also like to try to squeeze a bit more time in to get working in my sketchbook...
