I thought when we went into lockdown this time I would get lots of painting done and all the household chores that are constantly waiting for me. Instead the motivation left the household and we preferred to sit about, reading, watching tv and making melting moments. I did do some paintings of the beach for the Watercolour NZ 5 day challenge, which helped a little.
Maddox Jewellers in Katikati still has the Visual Haiku in their gallery. Unfortunately no one can see it until we go down to level 2.
It was very cold at the beach last week so I did some plein air from my covered deck. Always good practice to do this. Not always with good results.
My favourite day was when I had a session of wet on wet painting fast and loose and then putting a land mass across the horizon. What do you think??
In February 13th to 19th I am taking a group of women artists( beginners to advanced) on a painting holiday to the Bay of Islands. A fabulous opportunity for concentrating on your practice. If you would like to know more about this trip please make contact with either myself ( through this blog) or Sharron Hickman on 0274732934 or email email@example.com. Sharron is the tour guide through Exclusive Tours Ltd.
