Back To Basics

Summer has come and gone and I didn't even notice, how did that happen!?!?

It's been full of ups and downs, but I think I'm going to let the downs wash away and just cherish the sunny days, beautiful cucumbers, photo shooting outdoors, action movies, and new geckos visiting the terrace during the evenings.

Don't know about you but I didn't get to use my watercolors during most of the summer. Got to do sketches and studies though, and got ready to start a new series of paintings, and now finally my brushes are getting wet again, yeah!

And I'm taking the opportunity to go back to basics and use some pigments I haven't used for years. I can't even remember why they got replaced with something different in the palette, but hey, I'm having a blast rediscovering, experimenting, and finding how to integrate them in my current painting processes.

Love your plant painting!
Sometimes going back to basics can lead you into a whole new area of discovery - and a lot of fun to be had in that. Enjoy playing with paint :)

and thank you so much for the wonderful book cover you designed for me - it's on my blog today :) xx

Hi, Teresa, good on you. You're brave to talk of the inner journey. "Basic and classic" is forver new. BTW, we're enjoying summer now. Take care and enjoy your discovery.
Best wishes, Sadami

So much visual interest in the greens and shapes of the leaves you have in this one - so glad you are getting back to painting!

Thanks Pat, it's fun indeed. Hey I can't wait for your novel to be out there!

Sadami as you said "basic and classic is forever new" you are so right. Hope you're having a great time with your illustration, and the summer!

Rhonda, all I have to say is GREENS, right? You know what I mean LOL

Ann, I'm excited to be painting too! Now I just need to see some of your new ones and everything will be right again :D
