Searching for inspiration
I'm in a lull of sorts. I'm picking away at different pieces but there is no one piece that is firing me up, making me forget the world concentrate on creating it.
So I've been flipping through photos. So many photos I have! Some of them catalogued, a lot not. I've gotten as far as putting them in years so I guess that's a start. Now to further define down to art and photos then further still. It seems too daunting a task to contemplate. Perhaps best saved for one of those cold dreary damp days when I'm confined to the house.
What I would like to do next is a drawing I think. Drawing is my comfort zone and when I've been painting for awhile, the need to use graphite or charcoal calls to me. Finding the right piece that inspires is the challenge.
Meanwhile I played with a little watercolour of some pears I bought. Pears are such simple yet such complex fruits and so classical in paintings. This is done in a tiny 3 x 5 Moleskine watercolour book.
