Day 60- And how a skunk changed the course of things-
watercolor 7,5 x 11 inches
There I was in my studio setting things up, feeling not that up to it, when a skunk, all bright and bushy tailed happened to drop by for a visit. Mad rush for camera ensued. But then I thought, no, enough is enough. I will have some fun and so I painted half from memory, half from observation and yes I confess I actually made some things up! In fact I like my initial 'warm up' very much, because I used a ball point pen to draw something like the pattern of the fence across the street. And now I am set to pursue this way of painting for at least the next month. (So soon I will be painting in the birdies I have been breathlessly running after but have invariably ended up way too small in my photos and made me want to cry. Now I will just imagine them and paint them singing. Done.)
