I was walking back with the mail this morning when I saw this scene in the morning sun, and immediately got my paints out, aiming for just shapes and contrasts. The shadows photographed more blue than they are.
There is something exhilarating about painting – the whole creative process, the learnings and the discoveries, and always – the challenges. I started painting in watercolour when the children were leaving home. A few years later, my artist mother suggested oils, and it has become a passion. I share my journey with this blog as I stretch myself with the exhuberant intention of painting daily.
