|Watercolour and coloured pencil|
Wishing everyone a happy and creative 2011!
This is the time of year when everyone makes lists and resolutions. I prefer to set myself goals rather than try to keep resolutions. A list of goals keeps me focused during the year and I also think about how I will achieve them. The above painting was from the beginning of last year and one of my first attempts at mixing watercolour and coloured pencil. This year I'd like to improve my watercolouring skills (last year I learnt to use oil paints at a painting class), but I need a good book to start me off...any recommendations?
This is also the time of year when people wish for a good year ahead and there are many traditions that hopefully will bring them luck. In Italy they have one strange custom of wearing red underwear on New Years eve, so obviously I couldn't resist drawing these for you!
I hasten to add these are not mine and they were new. Now you know what to wear next year!
Happy New Year to you all!
