Some time I find I enjoy just sketching and don’t feel I need to add any colour at all… It is another way to tell a story.. to practice. No doubt it is another safe way for people who not sure yet how to use colours, you can also rub it off and correct.. Although I normally prefer to avoid rubbing off when I can… Just do another line where you think it should go. I am sure the next time you sketch you would not put that extra line.. Normally some of my sketches I turn to colour paintings anyhow. enjoy

Last Look White Fields


Muriel, posted for me few pictures she took today on her Facebook page of the place where she live. If you only saw those pictures, each one was like a small post card asking to be painted. She is living in Cumbria which is a beautiful area, in my view like switzerland. I quickly sketched a couple as soon as I saw them and I hope you can also see why this area is so beautiful and pictures. I had to add another one which was done later on. I have some water colours sitting beside me on the desk and every time when I see a nice picture if I have time it get sketched on a 15×20. I use it to exercise, either with water colours or pencil, as a friend in my club suggested, to improve paint at least one a day. If it looks special, it probably will turn one day for an acrylics, or oil painting.
