Have really enjoyed my studio time today. It started with a morning tea for my neighbours so I could show off my newly created art space. I talked of how watercolour today is far from wishy washy washes and often can incorporate other media. I have been inspired to try this again today thinking all time time about the new dvd I received a week or so ago, Pushing the Boundaries by Chris Forsey. I love his addition of oil pastel, inks and acrylics to watercolour. He demonstrates in a clear easy going manner and the urge to stop the dvd part way through and give something a try soon means he really is inspiring. I am struggling with doing landscapes as I have still not found a way of putting them on paper in a way that pleases me. With an image of a waterfall from a magazine to start my idea added with my recollections of several waterfalls we have visited in our Australian landscape, I played with bits of mixed media added to my watercolour washes to create this painting "A Fall Somewhere". Playing with all the additional media I think helped me overcome my "landscape fear" for today at least.
