Every year I paint my paintbrushes intheir copper containers and every year I say the same thing: that I want to replace the copper bowls with stoneware containers, simply because the copper is too high maintenance.But once the copper is cleaned and buffed, I succumb before their splendour and so the paintbrushes stay in copper containes yet another year.
This second sketch was done in 2016, also of my copper containers.
I took the day off and went galavaning. Had coffe and cake and tea, bought a Napoleon chair and a plant. And inbetween I did something useful like a sketch.
Somewhere I’ve lost my burning desire to sketch. Apart from me feeling it, the sketches also clearly show it. They are dull and lifeless. It could be that I have started doing a lot of my first love which is oils. But I do want to sketch, there are so much around to capture in a sketch! So, the question: will that enthusiasm to sketch return if I just keep going?
