Today has been one that has been full of blessings. Do you ever set off to do one thing and then the muse takes you on an amazing journey. I was blessed with one of those today.
I set off to the car boot market nearby with my camera thinking to photograph some vegetables and fruit for Mandarin Orange Monday tomorrow. Well what is normally half hour walk took nearly two hours. Its finally autumn here, leaves on the trees are slowly turning to reds and yellows. Nearly every house had trees that were resplendent in their autumn jerseys! I had to take photographs. I even collected leaves from the pavement. I was in a world of joy and wonder.
Getting home, I started on a pencil sketch that I had in mind for Sunday
Sketches, it turned into the watercolour above. The lace is actually a free brush I downloaded from Obsidian Dawn. It fits in with my theme on Lace for my exhibition. So I am excited about all the possibilities there. Then of course I could not help but fiddle with the painting in Painter then Photoshop. See below, as you can see I went a bit overboard on the new lace brushes!
You would think that would be enough for one day wouldn’t you.
After lunch I uploaded the photos from this morning onto the computer and I edited some. Here are a few.
Then I had to get out my little watercolour pad and paint a watercolour.
After all that I think I deserve a nice cup of tea or two sitting outside in the balmy autumn sun!
Have a wonderful week creating lovely art, blessings to you all.
