I am a third of the way through my #100daysproject of painting 100 things growing in my garden.

Any sustained effort on a project has highs and lows; I have had days of lag and disinterest, days where time is just too short and I fall behind and days of joy and peace found painting in quiet spots.

Mostly it’s been a good discipline. A bit too time consuming on some days.

But I’m loving having a little book recording my garden growing.

And above all it’s forced me to identify and name all the plants I’m recording which has been very enlightening and informative.

On with the next!

Outside today has been sunshine and showers but inside it has been hot, hot, hot!

I got started on this piece by un-leashing my inner Paul Klee, not intentionally, I was just blocking in some geometric shapes to work over but I love the painted patchwork.

Then I collaged in some geometric shapes on top by using patterns and colours from my stashes, which resonated with the scene.

A brief ray of sunshine brought real warmth to the scene.

This kind of instinctive, not overly considered sketchbook work is important in unearthing the happy accidents.

I think this rough little sketchbook piece has a lot to recommend another ‘proper’ go at it if I can relive it again.
