My drawing and painting life
From time to time life’s just hard. And from time to time it’s hard to start making something. This week I found out a friend had died quite suddenly. Just last Saturday we were on a hike through his hometown and visited the sites. Monday night I received a phone call that he had died.
I have been a bit shaken this week. And will just share a painting or two I made last week. I was taking an (online) watercolor course about Fall (the season).
Watercolor is new to me, so I thought the assignments were quite hard. But absolutely fun and I will finish the course, though later than I meant to.
One of the assignments was about painting a landscape with trees and reflections in a lake. It’s not completely to my liking, I may try again later.
Another assignment was to paint a leaf portrait. That was hard as well. I took a rather large one. Not a smart move, it took ages to finish. But I like the result – especially if you don’t know what the original looked like, haha.) Well, see for yourself.
