Day 13 Make-up or Toiletries

I actually don’t own much make-up just the bare essentials. For me black/brown mascara and pre face masks a favourite lipstick. Both only worn when going for an evening out or entertaining at home.

These days the former occasion happens rarely now! I think I may have become socially inept.

Working outside mostly in solitude the robins in the gardens I tend don’t seem to mind my ’au natural’ face! When not working cycling, swimming or my art do not require a glam look and The Long Suffering…well he rarely sees me any other way!

Day 11 was Pebbles and Rocks….

Day 12 was Vases and containers

My vase was one I made in my second year of junior school the first time we were allowed to use a turntable. I remember being so excited on the day and my Mum was so pleased with my effort she kept it on her shelf until she died four years ago!

I am still managing to keep painting mostly from life and this week attempted an interior room painting.

The corner of my sitting room is a special place. The Ercol desk and chair I inherited from my mother. It was where she entered her ’ins and outs’ into her ledger on a daily basis. I use it to write and invoice.

The very old rocking chair recently re-upholstered was Long-sufferings Grandfathers and the ’art deco’ lamp was a present to me from my father-in-law.

I found this painting a real challenge, what to keep in what to leave out….I love and collect duck so they had to stay in! I am reasonably happy with the result but going forward I need to mix more paint.

A Special Corner

Finally this afternoon it was back in the studio and using a photo reference from the man behind the lens of the sunrise this morning at the Eye Bridge Wimborne.

I cropped the image to make it my own and painted with a just over an hour time limit as though I was there sometimes with the panel upside down!
