Indigo SkyThis is a scribbly little watercolor done in my sketchbook on Strathmore drawing paper.
More than anything else, I was trying to record the contrast of colors as I looked out the front window. It is raining/sleeting/snowing, and the sun is shining very brightly periodically, but the sky is VERY dark in the north. A very interesting, beautiful, dramatic day - and I can hear geese "barking" as they head south, away from that black sky. They don't know what they'll be missing. Just as I don't know what I'll be missing where ever it is that they go.
I did dig out a couple of Julia Cameron books and I'm feeling more creative already. Is Julia Cameron my little creativity pill? She's one of those "just do it" people, and I need that once in awhile. I have always said you can paint whether you are in the mood or not. I guess I just forgot my own advice for a week or two (or more).
Now I'm going to round up some objects for a still life for this afternoon's class. It's a warm colors kind of day - maybe with a little glass added to the set-up. Maybe the round bottle with the plant cuttings from my post a couple of days ago, and a few pieces of pottery. We'll just see what falls together.
