OK here are the two watercolour atc's which I mentioned in my last post. Difficult to believe that I have made four posts this week, but as I said in the first of these, last week was quite a prolific time for me. I was making atc's rather than surfing - or at least it seems like that was what happened. Well anyway, got to my art group meeting on Tuesday night and was determined to do some more watercolours. A little more involved than the last set although I am not sure that they have the naivity of that set. they are growing on me so I will let you see them anyway.
This is a very much more simple landscape. Running out of time - too much jaw-jaw and not enough painting - I quickly started another skyscape. Could have been a lot more aerial perspective in the sky to give the effect of the dome of the sky, but there you are; that is what happens when not concentrating. the line of the trees forming the field hedge and a little glimpse of the fencing give a point of focus to the landscape and finish off this little sketch. I am determined to do this every week now. Each week at my art group I intend to produce two or three paintings. Once I feel that I have found some of my old skill with the brushes I will vary this to do a few works in other media. One of my problems is that I do not focus enough on any one technique to really feel confident using any one medium. But hey ho, it's all grist to the mill - and I enjoy it; otherwise I wouldn't be doing it
Thanks for your perseverence and patience this week, back to normal next week.
