Back on April 26th Dana came across an idea to do a painting-a-day through May.
Dana is a fabulous painter and makes the best use of sketchbooks I’ve ever seen.
I find the way she invents and plays through using her sketchbooks really inspiring.
So I was inspired to paint-a-long too.
So I signed up to join in optimistically.
Then the first of May came around without anyone telling me!
I didn’t notice that by May 3rd I’d already fallen behind.
Than we visited family for a few days, then I went on a computer course, then it finally caught up with me and by then I was well behind.
So I set my mind to catching up this week,
and I have actually enjoyed having a reason to play at whatever I liked in my sketchbook- some patterns, some black silhouettes, some Paris doorways, butterflies…
I have just got printed a stack of ‘inspiration’ photos that I keep taking but never get to draw from, so I’m just pulling them from the pile and painting away.
It’s great fun and never too late to join in too.
Just a little reminder that all images are copyrighted and I’ve asked for them not to be pinned – thanks for respecting this. Claire
