AAh! Domesticity.

Just hanging around the house today, conserving energy in the humidity,  but keen to try a looser style of watercolour.
Bring out the teacup, that default subject.
Most of the many teacups floating around the internet (have I fallen down the rabbit hole a la Alice?) are sketched in cafes and ritzy watering holes. Mine I am afraid is situated on a tray on my balcony. I do have a rather distracting view of a gigantic cruise liner anchored over the way but I managed to produce something at least.
It always bothers me if a day goes by without something to show for it. Yesterday it was some resin jewelery made with my granddaughters, we had fun embedding Hundreds and Thousands (sometimes known as cake sprinkles and often used to make Fairy Bread) and gummy bears, very cool and lots of fun.
My effort to float a tiny origami crane in a bottle was less than successful, the paper despite being sealed did not look good, maybe another time.
Today's effort (A4 size) .
Not wildly happy with it but it is a start.

  2. I love your splashy tea cup! The colours are gorgeous and vibrant. It is hard to paint with no lines but this doesn't lack definition & is full of light.
