Rose study taking shape
Life often is too busy to give us a chance to paint every day. I too have this problem due to gallery deliveries, administration for UK and abroad, plus my writing. Often when I would far rather be in my studio painting. Obviously I have daily chores too that need attention! But no matter how busy I am I always find time to pick up my brush even if it is just for five minutes. At the moment I am still loving the bouquet of roses given to me by a neighbour which has renewed my passion for painting them. Above is a sweet little study that only took a few minutes this morning. It isn't intended as a piece to be framed but it kept me feeling happy because I had found time to paint. I also know if I keep painting small studies by the time I am ready for a larger painting when the time is right, peaceful and without life getting in the way I will be raring to go.
Artist Tip for the Day : Make the most of a few minutes every day to improve your art and keep your enthusiasm for painting at a high level!
There is an exercise for painting roses on my first DVD "Amazing Ways With Watercolour" available via this link
