Day 19 / 31 Day @strada.easel Challenge to paint or draw from life.
Even on a grey, low light day, when you really look, you start to see more and more colours. Out driving and exploring, i had 45 minutes to play with the paints whilst my hubby took our Retriever for a walk along the beach below.
I started broadly and reached a point of Blah. Overpainting and putting the pad on the ground, at arm's length, allowed more freedom of movement. Pretty happy with the results and I know this one will become a larger canvas. Excited to return to the studio..... eventually! #artistontour !! ________________
As the waves of life lap at your feet, let me hold your hand. And be your guide. Now they merely play, and tickle your tiny feet. But as you grow, so will they. They will stop playing and start challenging. Teasing you and goading you to rise up to it. Then there will a time come, when these very waves lash at you, threaten to wreak havoc, even swallow you whole. But then, as is now, you will have me at your side. And my hands firmly holding yours. Through my words, I will always be your guide. To make sure that no wave is unconquerable for you. -- photo courtesy @ode_to_art
