I have rubbish lighting in the room where I paint so I prefer to paint in the daytime when I can see the colours properly. One day I'd like to have decent lighting so that I can carry on painting
but for now, my evenings are the time when I do my knitting or crocheting.
This is what I've been making.
It's a little cardigan for my daughter's son. It turned out too big for him but at the rate he's growing it won't be long before it fits him!
For my next project I have an idea of the colours I want to use and I've seen a pattern I like too. On the Ravelry website is says it's fairly easy to make but I think they mean it's easy for an expert and that's not me. I might have been a knitter for a long time but I tend to stick to stitches I'm familiar with!
I did a sketch of how I might like it to look. I say 'might' because I'm unsure of all that grey. I'm a bit greyed out after making the little cardigan and pine for some brighter colour. We'll see. Here's the sketch above on the left hand page of my sketchbook. The other sketches are just doodlings and they're nothing to do with it, so ignore those!
Will I be able to do it?
If I do manage to tackle it, I'll show you in a later post. :)
Meanwhile, during daylight hours I've painted two more mini-mounted watercolours.
The White Hare painting is now listed in the shop here.
And it had to happen didn't it?
As you might have guessed if you've seen my previous posts, all those harbours I saw during the summer have influenced this!
