@tea_francis Tea! I was cleaning out the garage earlier and this individual, (now ‘Marion’) pretty much tried to take the broom out of hand and beat me to death with it. Any info on the beauty you could give?
Finished the little blighter a day ahead of schedule. So a head start with whatever’s next on the list. Have to say... tortoise... very satisfying to do. And small pebbles for that matter. Watercolour
Managed to find a few hours this pm to finish off this painting and take a typically very poor photo of it. (Is it just my rubbish camera?) You can’t tell, but this represents a new step in how I work. Watercolour 7 x 5”
After a morning of pointlessly comparing myself to others I’m now sat staring at a wildly intimidating piece of paper. I know what should go on it but it’s not quite clear in the minds eye yet. Tea needed I think.
Why isn’t my email working? Why won’t it send for hours then does? Why are ‘sent’ emails being bounced back months later? I don’t understand. Why isn’t it all cogs and levers? Why is the ‘cloud’ essentially a mind of its own? I’m old. It’s confusing! Argh....
@peterdeseve No sweat. Pic attached. Basically I pour a little in a dish and with a soft brush just smooth it on. And after throwing away several brushes discovered I had to use meths to clean up.
I wished I’d broken open the bottle of varnish sooner! Especially for miniatures (my favourite things to do) It makes everything richer, deeper. Been going back over some earlier work with new found varnishing zeal.
After 15 y of daily use I have to concede that my beloved boots have had it. As I stare at them and contemplate how I can possibly afford new ones I do wonder what it must be like to have flipping great wedges of cash. Unless someone knows how to repair DM soles.
Occasionally you have to get something out of the way that you need to do rather than have to do. Scratch the itch so to speak. Hence this miniature wolf. Watercolour 4 x 6”. Barring a few tweaks, I can get on.
