Welcome! Hope you see some artwork that pleases you, if not now, maybe next time…

Autumn sketches II..leaves and Marie-Christine’s cheetah.

Picking up leaves on my walk by the Loire resulted in autumn sketches number II during our art afternoon earlier today.  This is what I did, while Marie-Christine continued working on her cheetah.

All my sketches were done in pencil, pen and watercolor sketchbook, 19x20cm

…yellows in autumn…

…reds in autumn…

With her permission, I photographed Marie-Christine’s painting this afternoon, to show the stage where it is at now…far from finished of course. It is an old painting that she is reworking: keeping the cheetah, and started changing the background, wanting to work towards a warm African feel with heavy skies. Looks good to me already so far!

    I love your work. It has inspired me to finally enroll in a journal sketching/watercolour course. In the past have done a little bit of drawing but am totally new to painting. I am having so much fun that I wanted to thank you for sharing.
