This spring I did a few days out and spend the day or the afternoon outside in the sunshine by the lakeside or in the park, walking or cycling. I took my sketchbook and sketched lots of people outside.
I ended up creating a painting in guache and some newspaper elements with my favourite scenes based on the sketches.
I enjoyed doing this painting, something other than the course exercises (which frankly I like because they prompt me to do other things I usually would). It helps me take my mind of things (my job, shifting houses, and many other things that I have to think about) and just enjoy playing around with the texture of the paint. Here is the result.
