Slight Change of Plan
Above is a quick watercolour of a Brussels Sprout! Not exactly a picture you would want on your wall but a good exercise in building up colour and layers and learning how to do 'veining' of the leaves. The circles of paint at the bottom of the paper are the colours I used in the painting.
The postcard sized watercolour is lying on top of an Indian quilt that I was lucky to receive as a Christmas present. It is block printed by hand using vegetable dyes and is 100% cotton and beautifully tactile. I have just noticed how well the colours blend with the Brussels Sprout!
I hope that your first week of the year is off to a good start and maybe you are having to make some adjustments to plans, like I have. We'll get to our goals in the end but a few diversions will make our journey's all the more interesting!
