I’m feeling the need for more drawing in my life so lunchtime included a 20 minute sketch session in NWLabs cafe. Always a good spot for some drawing – lots of people around who are very wrapped up in whatever or whoever they’re with.
I’ve been neglecting painting recently and when I have got the brushes out it’s been birds, birds, birds.
So I have a new plan.
After a quick rummage through the photo library over at wetcanvas.com I now have a folder full of Venice photos ready to be used. This way I don’t have to agonize over what to paint. I’m also painting a lot larger than I have been of late. This one is on 16×20 which gives me a bit more elbow room but also means I have to concentrate and plan a bit more.
So – more ambitious, non-feathered paintings is the course of action.
This one wasn’t a total success but not a total failure either. The drawing was fun as always and the painting worked in some places and not in others. Not bad for a first effort in a while.
