Santa Cat came to visit today as I was trying to get back into the swing of things after Thanksgiving. watercolor and gouache.
And time spent wondering why gouache turns so muddy when blending ‘primaries’. Could be a sure sign that my ‘starter’ kit was just that: a starter. I should probably toss the remainder and upgrade to a full set of the luscious paints by M Graham Wonder if Santa Cat might drop something beneath the tree? Hmmmmm
Jury duty involves quite a bit of sitting around in absolutely boring rooms. Not so good for scanning images, but great for sitting and inking. Also pretty good for learning American dialects. It was a drug abuse trial. Hours spent hearing ‘payinn’ and ‘peeill’. Translation: ‘pain’ and ‘pill’.
This is the second day of twitter’s #illo_advent challenge
Another seasonal art challenge (advent illustrations), open to everyone:#illo_advent on Twitter.
Have a look – lots of amazing illustrations. 2 days of jury duty gave me a late start, but I have joined here at last!
