Having complained about losing my mojo ( whatever that means!), brilliant artist and fellow blogger, David has set me a challenge to get me back on track, to paint 5 still lifes! Not only not my usual subject, but I decided, not my usual medium either. So here is no.1. I am so SCARED of watercolour, but I was so surprised to really enjoy this. Half of that of course is that I didn't care what sort of mess I made. My two attempts yesterday went promptly on the fire, which gives an idea what they were like. I probably won't stay with watercolour, I don't have a suitable ground, and I have been itching for a while to get out the pastels.....do more drawing....ink and wash.....acrylics......charcoal.......flowers.....fruit......bottles...... See what you did, David, my mind is a-buzz! Thank you.
