Teahouse of the February Morning – TEA for Illo Friday

Tuesday, February 28th, 2006

A watercolor sketch of the teahouse at Descanso Gardens. Kind of. Sort of. I took a lot of liberties with it, as I understand a painter has a right, maybe even an obligation to do. I might make a painting of this someday. For now, it’s just a study for practice. Did you know that [...]

portrait for practice

Monday, February 27th, 2006

A quickie watercolor sketch portrait in the old “blue coptic” journal , done from photo ref, which I made a few years ago. The paper is awful – coarse, too absorbent, and you can’t push paint around when you apply it; it sinks in immediately. But I’m too stubborn to just put it away with [...]

Another sketchcrawl page

Tuesday, February 21st, 2006

My workbook is evolving, and so am I. Sometimes the mood strikes me to do compositional and value sketches; other times I might be captivated by the texture of a rock, carefully observing the nature of reflections. On Saturday, while hiding out from the sprinkling of rain under the teahouse roof, I settled in to [...]

Camellias Sketchcrawl style

Sunday, February 19th, 2006

Saturday, four hardy artists braved the cold temperatures and sallied forth to Descanso Gardens for a sketchcrawl. Because it was sprinkling, our first stop was the Japanese teahouse with its sheltering roof, which protected us from the morning drizzle. We sketched there for an hour or more and then, seeing that the sun was peeking [...]

Sketches are made by fools like me

Tuesday, February 14th, 2006

It’s startling to me at times how I can get so caught up in what I’m doing and ignore the obvious. Today I spent some time at Descanso Gardens with my husband, enjoying the beauty of a spring (Valentine’s) day, and I took my time doing a very detailed line drawing of a magnolia twig. [...]

My artworkbooks

Sunday, February 12th, 2006

As you can see, I use my journals for a lot of different purposes, not only for sketching pleasure. As I’ve committed myself to doing more painting this year, I find that I’m reaching for it more and more as a practical workbook, not a chronological diary of my days. In fact, I have numerous [...]

Chinese New Year 2006 – Part 2

Tuesday, February 7th, 2006

Lions dance through fields of firecracker debris. Surely good fortune will follow. Brush pen in my Moleskine … memories of the Chinese New Year parade.
