Each day I wake up thinking "What shall I sketch today" -- and probably spend too much time trying to find an inspirational piece to sketch and paint as part of my daily practice. Since my weeks before the holiday promise to be even more busy, finding simple objects that still inspire me as well as create a bit of practice challenge, isn't always easy. Relying on photographs, since my practice time is just before bed, can also be somewhat challenging.
Still I found a photo of this pretty seashell -- the challenge here was to create two colors that are compliments --!!! Blend them with too much water -- grey -- too little water -- no blend .... so this took a bit longer to complete than I had imagined ... with a lot of 'lifting' and drying and reapplication. Fun too!
Now the question --- "What shall I paint TONIGHT!??" Sigh!
