Spring what?

It’s spring cleaning time in my studio, and than means no cleaning at all, most of the time. I started by sketching the mess, which today meant opening a Laloran sketchbook and grabbing some Pitt Artist pens. Then I spotted some books and magazines piled on a table that needed to be put away, but not before I made some tea, curled up in a chair, and looked through them for a bit. And since I haven’t posted anything in a while, I scanned my sketch and am now writing about it. You see what I mean about spring cleaning?

    Ha, ha. I know what you mean – especially the part about reading books and magazines before they can be put away! On another note I had a bouquet of tulips and daffodils that were definitely fading away but before I threw them out, I remembered how you often sketched similar bouquets, so I gave it a try, and I will treasure the results – at least the memories of that bouquet!

    Nice learning you do what so many of us do. Cleaning a studio is fun looking thru everything you have-but wiithout the “cleaning.”

    Hi Shari, The cooler Autumn temperatures are coming in with a shock in south eastern Australia, so I am curling up with your new book to brighten my world with colour. Thankyou for the instruction that will keep me experimenting with mixes. Sandi

    You make me smile….yes, I too confess to read through magazines stacked for reference before I finally throw them out. Nice sketch.

    You make about as much progress as I do when I am cleaning and organizing!
    But you still end up producing beautiful artwork!

    • It was just a little one that I did while standing up. I figured that if I sat down it would take even longer and I would get less work done. In the end, I did zero cleaning. There’s always tomorrow.

    You’re not alone! A good pile of clutter is a treasure to sketch. Let me join others in congratulating you on your new book. I read it from cover to cover and I am looking forward to using it as a workbook to guide my watercolor adventures.

    LOL That’s what happens when I attempt to clean too. Maybe it is something that affects artists.
