I started trying to do some sketches of the fruit still life pics I took, and just kept on drawing. I also remembered that I don't actually know how to sketch. I want to practise just sketching the subject, not drawing every detail. But I think I'll just enjoy drawing for a bit...worry about the sketching later.
So I did a drawing of a pear with two juicy plums. And then I did a drawing of my daughter from a pic of her that I just love...braces and all. Ain't she cute!?!? So that was last night's work. No painting! It's been a while since I've done that. Also, I got so wrapped up in the drawings that I forgot to smoke! Of course, I remembered later, and made up for lost time.
I also remembered that I have a cool book that concentrates on Wet in Wet painting. The Tao of Watercolor by Jeanne Carbnetti. It's a little cosmic, but I think it's gonna help me get the hang of this technique.
Go ahead and click on the pics to see them bigger.
That's about it. The temperature has risen some...only -24C...just in time for the snow storm.
But my house is nice and cozy, and I think I'll draw some...pears.
Drop me a line, tell me what you think about...stuff...
