I love this Asian tea pot in real life as much as I loved painting it! It was fun to do the little blue scenes on it. I also got a little creative with the way I cut the orange. I'm really enjoying adding so much 'stuff' to my still life set ups lately.
A few evenings ago, I did a Watercolour Demo for the Bayview Watercolour Society. First I spoke about my work as a daily painter, then about learning to draw from life drawing sessions and finally about being an urban sketcher. After the break I painted a small still life set up, which you can see in the bottom right.
Great wonderful intimate group. Thanks to everyone that attended!
Spent the day with the Toronto Urban Sketchers at an old downtown building, that is about to be demolished. The organizer of the group is putting together a book of our paintings, based on disappearing landmarks in Toronto. It's kind of a sad subject, but an important one.
Back from a wonderful loooonnggg vacation during one of the most fantastic summer's ever! It's been sunny with a cool breeze almost every day. Even the adorable dogs along the Humber River are enjoying it!
Continuing with my abstract art and really enjoying it! I always draw first then add watercolour paint however, this style has me jumping between drawing and painting... painting and drawing... just mixing it up. $60 - 8x10"painting close ups -
My aim for this piece was to keep the line and brush work as expressive as possible. This was done at the awesome Toronto Botanical Gardens when I didn't plan on being there, but was prepared to paint just in case!
SOLD This little eyeshadow case that I converted into a watercolour palette is wonderful. It really enables me to sit and paint anywhere and at any time. $50 - 5x7"painting with 8x10"mat Here is the location picture -
Here are a few pages from my sketchbook that I made for The Sketchbook Project. It is an art gallery in Brooklyn, New York that has sketchbooks from all over the world, from floor to ceiling. Proud to be part of it. Also, they have a bookmobile for the sketchbooks to travel the world! Here's the link to my sketchbook, all 30 pages! Big thanks to those that click on it. : )
