i love to draw with a watercolor brush. i often wish i would THINK more and plan before jumping in with a sketch, but i just don’t have it in me.
take these 2 glass cups of tea below for example. the original pic is in my old istanbul travelogue. anyway the plates have 6 red segments not 8 as in the upper cup. just a tiny bit of thought before diving in could have come in handy. but what the hell, i could always consider this the warm-up study and do another sketch of the exact same thing. in fact now that i say that i realize i should do that more often.
after the glasses i wanted to draw a building with my paintbrush. i’m here to tell you that was extremely rewarding.
now i want to do another in bright blue.
i’m determined to paint one building a day this week. i detest one-a-day type challenges so this may not work for me. we’ll see.
where are you and what are you doing? someone in los angeles wants to know.
