I love old things. Things worn with time and loaded with stories. Old cups, old jugs, tins, doilies from Maman, teaspoons…And so today I sat by my table and sketched all these old things.
..Watercolor and pen in large Daler and Rowney sketchbook, 21x29cm..
(Apologies for the bad scan…I can’t get those dark spots away without changing the colour of the aquarelle)
While we are in the barn, I don’t have an art atelier, so in fact the whole barn is my atelier! I have a large table just behind our little sitting corner where I work when doing watercolors or drawings etc. All the brushes and pencils and pens are at hand in copper containers. Behind me(not seen on photo)is the large easel for when I do painting and all the oil pants are stored on a trolley which I store under the table. So, in fact, it works! One doesn’t need a fancy art atelier to do art! A little corner will do. I hope you too have your little corner, even if it is a corner of the kitchen table!

I love your sweet, cozy atelier! xx~
Thanks for letting me peep into your temporary ‘atelier’. I’m loving your August challenge. My painting area at the moment is either the kitchen table or on the terrace depending on the weather.
I love old things too, because they tell stories, really good ones!
Loving all the posts and sketches so far this month. Congratulations for continuing and not giving in to pool linguering etc.
Your barn atelier looks great.
