195 entry

Cornwallll was lovely and some artwork achieved!

The view from our caravan. 
Did a similar oil painting a few years ago but didn't like the harsh colours. Have achieved the softness of colour this time!

Added some of the family as I love painting people best! A nice memory!

In the pub
This is one of my 'travel sketches' quickly done and in situ!
Love doing them as they leave me with a book of "moments in time!"

On the beach
Another 'travel sketch' - my moleskin book is nearly finished!!!!
Used the watercolours first with pen over the top for definition!
Will try the other way around when my ink cartridge runs out and I can fill it with permanent ink!

Could I have achieved more artwork? Maybe but then I did loads of other things with my fabulous family! How special is that....

About Me

My photo
Art has always been an integral part of my life. At the age of 50 I was able to complete a long awaited foundation course and HNC/HND. From this experience I have developed my love of pastel and watercolour. Rubens has always inspired me with his fluidity of movement; Degas and Lautrec I admire with their rough marks and blends of colour,their freshness of approach. I feel I have been given a talent for a reason and gradually the purpose shall unfold... sarah.orchard54@hotmail.co.uk Note: Images are Copyright Sarah Orchard © 2009
