I had these beautiful roses and flowers and a scented candle on my table... The composition was so inspiring that I grabbed the colors...and painted it right away, first thing in the morning, just a few days ago... Due to the early hours, the colors of photo didn't come out very well, but you get the idea!
I love all plants and flowers - as well as cut flowers and flowers in pots! I really enjoy the flowers in my garden but don't very often have time to paint when the light is best - but with a plant in a pot I can paint where and when I want!
Sometimes I sketch every day, sometimes I get lost for longer times, but never stop completely. I find sketcing very freely is the best way to be inspired! Even if watercolors are my favourite I also try different media. Let's see if I can keep up showing a page from my sketchbook once a week starting from now!
I'm very proud about this painting made by my 14-year-old son. It's a copy of ''The False Mirror'' by Magritte, and a part of his final work for the secondary school. Unfortunately, like most teenagers, he usually doesn't paint or draw at all in his spare time...if not obliged!
Never get tired of the sea! Especially I love the quite moments in the evening, when everybody leaves and I can listen to the waves and enjoy the sweping horizon...
On my holiday I also want to sketch small things - like in this case Indian Figs.
