A slightly unconvincing attempt at a young Dalmatian doggy. The painting I did, in watercolour for #WorldWatercolorMonth, is actually looks more square (and by square I mean rectangular) in real life, but my scanning skills would say otherwise. It is still far better than my oval-looking blurred photograph – but only just.
I found an image online, and then painted for an hour from memory. After I’d ‘finished’ the above, I compared this painting to the original, and realised I’d meant to paint a Doberman. Ahem. Obviously, I jest!
Anyone like whimsy?
Can you believe it’s July already? I can’t. Time is passing by that quickly, I didn’t have time to do a ‘proper’ watercolour for the first day of #WorldWatercolorMonth 2019 – and it isn’t like I haven’t known it was coming! It’s been here for the past few years. I’ve added a link in the badge below if you’d like to visit Doodlewash, where this all began.
So, I had a spare ten minutes to scribble a couple of ‘rabbits’ and then splosh lots of colour around over them. That was the fun part. The sploshing. Well, actually, the scribbling was too. In fact, the whole creative process is fun – regardless of the end result.
Normally, I post a White Rabbits post on the first of the month, and this month is no exception, although I used my imagination to see what a couple of white rabbits would create when given a brush and some watercolours.
And just as I thought it was a complete mess!
Well. It’s still fun – and they aren’t the only ones covered in paint.
Happy July! Grab your brushes… you know you want to!
Already the subtle signs of chaos are seeping through.
Spellchecker now needs to be told twice when to add a word to the dictionary. Once or twice every now and then is fine, but when you use words like I do, many a word is created and needs adding, and thus many a second can be wasted by clicking ‘add’ twice. Technology, eh?
Mind you, I digress.
I’m signing out of Blogland for a week or so now.
The Bathroom in the Mansion is being dramatically altered from tomorrow, the old Bathroom never to be seen again, and a newer, younger version is replacing it. Long time visitors will know that the Bathroom holds many a mystical quality, which may or may not be hidden forever when the changes take effect.
Things are already upside down here, not that that isn’t the norm, but they are more upside down than normal. They are so upside down, in fact, they are almost back to being downside up when viewed through a smoky mirror whilst riding a bicycle on a cobbled road.
The past few weeks have been not very productive for me, blogwise. I’ve kept this place ticking over, but I haven’t had chance to reply to a single comment for what must be a month now… and I haven’t yet had chance to visit the blogs I follow either. I apologise for that. Upon my return, I shall reply to all comments, and then start my blog visiting afresh. That means, unfortunately, I will have missed many a post written by the marvellous bloggers that I follow.
Please bear with me during these refurbishments.
Oh, perhaps I should have said at the beginning of this post ‘please don’t read this whilst listening to any sinister sounding music in the background’, it may be too late now, but better late than never.
‘Throomageddon is Nigh!
For my last watercolour for #WorldWatercolorMonth (which is twenty-two of twenty-two, and twenty-two out of thirty-one isn’t a bad number!) I present a wet on wet oceanscape, there’s that double-click again, which I allowed to evolve.
There does appear to be a black hole in the centre of it.
Or maybe that’s just my imagination.
I shall see you upon my return… until then – Feel Good!
(The Superhero Diaries is a scheduled post and will still appear on Thursday, unless the internet frazzles between now and then…)
