I just got out of bed after my nightshift days and the coffee has yet to kick in.
The past days were busy with painting for the "Things with Flowers" challenge , apart from spending time at work . But I got some nice paintings done.
Talking about # favorite things .... two of the most important are your eyes and your camera .
I get funny looks from other people sometimes when I snap pictures of leaves ;)
When you look at Morning Glory leaves you will notice that they are like an upside down heart shape.
When you paint these kind of observations are important. I think artists (designers, photographers, painters ) notice these things a lot more when they are out in nature. They are a lot more conscious of colors, shapes and textures even when they just look at weeds by the road side, because even there you can find inspiration.
You can train yourself to be more conscious of these things. Try it when you take a walk next time :)
Maybe even snap a picture or two , or pick a couple of leaves , take them home ,study the shape and draw it. Or better , get your watercolors out. There are some great tutorials on just painted leaves. Just give it a try...it's fun :)
Here are two more parts of Magical Seas for you
More of this kit next week again ...did I mention it's a large kit ?
Have a great week and be creative.
