I Know You…

Some flora and fauna blossoming 😊

When I am faced with a blank page… I wonder what to sketch or paint and then, invariably, my eyes go to the trees. Behind leaves and branches and the mystery that lies there… I spot a sparkling eye… Some ruffling feathers and my heart is filled with joy. I know you… It seems to say to the birds and the energy that emanates from nature… You are me and I, you… ❀️

Happy Hydrangeas in Watercolour πŸ˜ŠπŸŽ¨

People travel to all sorts of exotic places and because of so much connectivity one finds oneself inundated with inspiration.

I save many images, some for their colour others for the subject…once in a while I bring out a photo stare at it for a while, relish the colours, the contrasts and the values… Then I put it away and rely solely on my impression of it to work in my sketch book.

I feel this gives me a sense of direction and also complete freedom to have a ‘selective’ memory 😊

Watercolour bling… For the fun of it!

The biggest joy of watercolours is the spontaneity with which they can be done. This is still a more deliberate sketch because a little stem of the poinsettia broke when I was cleaning the pots. It made sense to use is for some sketching but I wanted to pair it with unlikely options, so this is what I ended up doing 😊
