Arched Door - Allan Kirk
Though I've painted dozens of doors, I decided to try this one from Allan Kirk (http://www.stepbystepwatercolour.com/index.html). I am enjoying learning his 'wash' approach - a bit different that the direct approach used by other artists. I also like the soft, impressionistic results. I have to admit too, that the images that Allan offers are some of the most beautiful landscapes and just those kinds of small European towns that I love!
That virus and the consequences of intense weeks of work, are still hanging on, and I find myself still pretty draggy. The sunshine and warm temps this weekend have helped, as has several naps (and yes catching up with some overdue chores) -- but I have to admit to still be a bit 'under the weather.' I've one more day of rest before another wild week.
Still, it's wonderful to see that bright sun, be able to walk outdoors with being knocked over by the wind, and remove at least ONE layer of clothing!
Charles has his jam today, so I'm looking forward to hearing some fine music and the laughter of friends.
Have a great day!
