Painting The Paralympics
I don't know if this painting appeals to anyone else (I'm open to offers if you are interested in buying it!) but I am pleased that I managed to achieve what I had in my head for the past 8 months. I have used watercolours and a Sharpie liquid pencil.
Hopefully my creativity will return with a vengeance now - our porch is finished (on the inside at least) which means I have been able to clear up the various piles of tools, coats, paints and packaging that have been cluttering up our house and my brain for the past 5 weeks. So no more workmen crashing about, a bit more peace and quiet and some peace of mind too.
Just as well, as there is another commission for Derwent on the horizon, using Inktense once again and a subject I cannot wait to get started on!
I am not so pleased with my tomato plants - they have sufferd a bit from the cold snap we had a couple of weeks ago and are not looking well. Mine are outside, unlike Midge's over at Soggibottom which are pampered in a greenhouse. It does not bode well.....
