8x6" watercolor NFS
Day 10 in the 30 day challenge
Objects around my painting area.
I am still experimenting with my watercolor technique
and yesterday, while I was wondering what to paint,
I remembered what Bernard Dunstan
emphasizes in his little gem of a book,
Starting to Paint Still Life.
Beside setting up a regular still life he recommends
you look for the" accidental groups which just happen
everywhere around us."
This still life was right in front of me.
I happen to like the book (all of his books, actually)
and have had it for years. It is small - 6x8 -and not an
entertaining book with colorful images, but it provides a
solid explanation of his personal teaching style with mostlyblack and white reproductions .
Works for me.
When I am commenting on other blogs and I have to enter
the hated, 'prove you are not a robot' to be able to 'Publish'
I find it a real pain in the neck because it takes so much
extra time. I had previously discovered when numbers were
asked for, that ANY two numbers would do the job,
and now I know why...drum roll...
you do not have to enter numbers at all
ONLY THE LETTERS. Honest. Trust me.
I wish the word had been passed around before now.
Maybe you already knew it, but I didn't. If it helps
even one other artist not to have to squint to read the
numbers then I will be happy.
Even better would be if everyone did not have
"comment moderation" at all! In a perfect world.
