Saturday morning

Yesterday was a rough day in my other world.  But there is nothing like a good night of rest and a quiet time on the beach to paint watercolours (even if the waves are really calling).  Here is what I have done:

sat-1-d

This family group was standing watching the surfers and as I painted they slowly packed up and left.  

sat-2-d

then I sat and painted this girl waiting for her friend who was surfing.   And then I did another one:

sat-3-d

you can see how I struggled to get the posture and position of her head right.  She moved very slightly every minute or so.  When I had finished I gave her this painting. 

Then I went up to watch my son playing hockey.  As I waited for his match I did this watercolour painting of the one of the spectators and the ref.  

sat-4-d

And that is that.  I am hoping to paint later today but we shall see.

  3. Hi K – I am finding it fun to capture people as they stay more or less in place but move around. It is a bit frustrating as I try to get my eye in but really it is such a special world – me and the paper – they are improving hey? Cheers S
