Look out

When you can’t get out to sketch, do the next best thing. Put something near a window and sketch that. I always find that natural light does the most beautiful things to objects. I have a little collection of bottles in my office. Even though I’m in a basement and the bottles face out onto a most unattractive metal rim of a window well, looking at their shapes and colours and how the light hits them makes them exciting despite the drabness of their surroundings. Sketched in an Etchr Perfect Sketchbook, A4 size.

    Hope you got as much pleasure from emptying some of those bottles as you did from painting them? Needs must in tough times!

    I love this Shari! Great idea, and I have been practicing with painting glass in different media. I wish you would maybe do a workshop on painting glass in watercolor!

    Good Morning dear Shari,

    This is a very good hobby. I collect the very attractive bottles and use some of them as flower vases.

    Good sketch and beautiful.
    Regards and blessings.
