The South African protea from Kirstenbosch
oil on canvas – 20 x 20 cm
We are right in the middle of winter, but I only finished my leaves painting this week-end.
Here in France, autumn is just beautiful. At first I was searching for yellow and orange spots, now that is all you see. Autumn colours with a bit of green in between.
To say these are autumn sketches won’t make much sense. : ) Surely you need the colours! But they are… maybe I must do a painting as well.
To make a commitment to create a sketch every week has a positive side and a negative side.
It does get you to draw more, but then just once : ) you fall behind and that’s where the negative part comes in.. You then do something quickly just to do… and end up with little sketches like the next two. I almost didn’t post them, but now they sit in my journal, so why not? They have their place there in these weeks of September, so who am I to tell them they’re not good enough for the blog…
