1. Spring is here, and I think it is the most beautiful season here in Ballarat. I spotted these pink blooms while driving and made a snap decision to pull over and take a picture. It’s too easy not to take those opportunities because of time constraints, but looking at this image I’m so glad I did.
2. Sketchbook magic. I knew there must be a reason I hadn’t cancelled my skillshare membership. It may have been so I could do this series of classes by Ria Sharon. I found Ria to have a really engaging style and these short lessons are based around common reasons/excuses not to make art a part of daily life, but also some practical ideas as to how you can. There were some gems that really resonated with me and I’m pleased to say that I have actually made some more marks in my sketchbook. I have also added lots more classes onto my list and now need a week off work haha. Thanks Clare for the heads up on this class.
3. Did I mention it’s spring. This is our old walnut tree on a beautiful spring day.
4. Playing with colour.
I actually just love mixing watercolours and painting spots. No overthinking, or judgment just play and discovery of what happens when you mix different colours together. Creative play brings me joy, how about you?
I hope you have had a nice weekend wherever you live and whichever season it is and of course I hope you had at least a little time to play.
p.s I forgot to mention that Isabel is kindly hosting the One Plus four = life posts if you want to join in too.
p.p.s skillshare often has specials on to sign up for one month free and I think that is the case at the moment via @riasharon on Instagram if this course appeals to you. Or you could do what I did and sign up and still be signed up a year later.It actually is great value really. (p.s not sponsored just sounding a bit that way)
