when your ship comes in


I've been wanting to explore painting boats for a long time now. They have great shape and wonderful colours. If you look close, you'll see some cars parked behind the wall back there...

July morning shadow

Well, I took a watercolour workshop at the Toronto Watercolour Society with the awesome Janet Rogers, and today I decided to retry her lesson... no pencil drawing first! Just start with your brush. I like the challenge and it certainly encourages a looseness however, given my love of line, think I'll stick with my drawing style. 
Other news, turn your old eye makeup kit into a watercolour palette. Now that's portable!

Another cafe sketch. I enjoy trying to capture the moment by designing the page with simplicity. I liked his light green shirt next to her red top. Also, I pretended that big post wasn't behind them, and it was just the windows.

I love painting grapes. They are wonderfully translucent.
