Re: sketch of the day

Nice sketch for today and yesterday. I hope you enjoyed your cuppa with them!

Alan sometimes I think that "art circles' lay down unnecessary do's and don'ts that worry the heck out of the newbie painter

Re: sketch of the day

good morning every one

.just to show how adding a couple of very distant,, hardly distinguishable cottages ,in the far distance helps with perspective ..on a piece of 9x7 140lbs

now for a cuppa tea ..

Re: sketch of the day

sorry I was lost for a subject this morning ,,so I decided to practice my trees (not again I hear)
well the shapes//////ah well//I do think trees are a challenge ..and yes one
could use a stippling brush and dab in a million leaves ,but after so many years of painting.watercolours .and painting every leaf ,,and my time left being short ,,well sorry folks .I dont have the time or the inclination to do so.

Re: sketch of the day

Good morning and thank you for looking
here is an old one for today ,I was thinking back today in 1948 when as a boy I was asked to go painting with an artist .I could not have been much good but he said.. the reason I ask you out with me .is because you are not scared of colours .. like I am.. he was a terific artist ..,and I can close my eyes and still see his wonderful paintings ,,,
