15 min with W/C


I'm thinking post something old so that you will create something new. I wonder if that stands a chance of working for me? We'll just have to see, won't we?
It's not that I'm not doing anything creative after all. I've had some great fun decorating some shopping bags (thinking ahead for christmas) and I must say that I just LOVE them. Maybe on nights I could do the prelim. sketch for some w/c. At least if the planning was done I could find time for the splashing good fun during my limited home time.

Hi, thank you for dropping by and the nice comments. Sure, please try anything that motivates you that you see on my blog. The leaves were the last thing I did that I felt motivated me at all ... I'm in one of those "why do I even try" moods. Can't wait until it passes.

I absolutely love the watercolor sketches you've done in the books. A story in them selves. Also want to tell you what a wonderful job you do on portraits ... my east favorite to try. But you make them look easy.

Again, thanks for stopping by.

Hi Sue,
Thanks so much for your lovely comments. This portrait is wonderful, I especially like the little pieces of bright colour. I'm going to put you on my favourites list, so I'm looking forward to more posts on your blog!

Thanks for stopping by My blog! I wrote that action plan list with enthusiasm, then the next day regretted it thinking I couldn't draw anymore. Then...I stopped thinking about it too much (that's my downfall thinking about what I should be doing!)While I was on the phone my mind was elsewhere so I didn't have to worry about what I was drawing. I think that's the key, to just give yourself permission to doodle without a reason! :) Now pick up that sketchbook!! x
