Where the Skies and Seas Are One
latest updates: clouds
First ever drawing. Done in my First ever Moleskine, standard HB pencil, kept sharpening with a craft Knife.
Clouds and Landscape
A new page with patterns and stylized pieces that made its way into my little molie the other night.
Cloudy Sky – Watercolour on scrap paper
Whenever I cannot find subjects to paint I follow the old adage, “Paint a sky a day”. This statement is attributed to Alfred East although Turner did this and John Constable, who was THE master of skies, certainly must have practised this.
This is one of 15 small skies I did this rainy afternoon. I’m trying to paint with a selection of water-brushes and am just about getting the feel of the different sizes. It helps to have great music to fill the room – everything from Louis Armstrong and Bing Crosby to Battlefield Band. Life is good!
Eye in the Sky
I had some paint left over after my first attempt, and I hate to waste anything, so I painted another piece of cardboard in turquoise and built some patterns on it in purple.
