This and That

Today we went to Deb’s house to add more layers to our experimental watercolors we made at my house about a month ago. I didn’t get any photos of the artwork but take a look at Deb’s pens.

You can’t even see all the colors here. Serious pen envy.

I have a new addition to the studio. I bought a used easel from one of my friends. It takes up way too much space but I want to continue on this painting journey I have been on so I thought it was a good time to get an easel.

I finally finished stitching my cedar trees. They will have a matt so I’ve photographed them with croppers. Now I need to find a new hand stitching project to work on.

  1. Your cedar trees are amazingly 3D and so lifelike.

    No such thing as too many pens – they’re just so good to look at aren’t they. The easel will make the painting easier and it will make a good stand to photograph your textile works on too.

      • I use my grand-daughter’s music stand for small pieces – I can position the stand in the best light. I like to use a tripod when i can as the resulting photos are much sharper so having the textile piece upright is good for me.

  2. I just want to pick the cedar up – they are so lifelike with such depth. The pens just say colour immediately.

    Great idea about the easel. It can be draped with an appropriate cloth or have a solid background. So I’ve learnt my one thing already for today….thank you….and only just awoken!

Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear your comments so please let me know what you think.
