This week I have been concentrating on getting my illustration web site ready for uploading, I hope to have it done by next week, but knowing me it will probably be the week after. The creative work is done, but I have to sort the codes and get the code verified etc. etc. Boring, so I tend to find other things to do! But, I have taken myself in hand, as hopefully it will become my bread and butter.
The upshot is that I have only spent a little bit of time painting, and my portrait is far from finished. To keep my spirits up (painting mode that is) I have done a couple of watercolours. The one above is the window sill next to my computer desk. I love the blue bottle the colours fascinate me when the sun catches it.
The gouache below is of Lucy my big ‘Fat Mama’ cat! She is very much an indoor cat, huge and lazy. However, if there is a smell of a mouse she is like a young gazelle and can move at the speed of light! Her favourite position is on a window sill surveying the world.
The next is a gouache I did during 29 Faces; I just love that poem by Coleridge and often use it to encourage me to think anything is possible. What would you do if you had that dream and woke up with a flower clenched in your hand…..?
Happy Paint Party Friday everyone.
