204 entry

Did this little mixed media canvas 5"x7" of boats. Rather nice in an impressionistic way.

203 entry

Just messing with an idea in my head - been there for days so I have tried it in A6 format. 
Like it so will develop it into a larger scale and wetter use of watercolour and maybe use water on some pen mark!

202 entry

This little sketch was done in the heat of the afternoon in Hale Cemetery...

And then on my way home I did these sketches of wild flowers.

I love foxgloves as they remind me of Beatrix Potter.

And the beautiful dog rose is my second favourite..

201 entry

Don't do enough practicing so spent a little time playing with my watercolours, pen and charcoal.
Liked the use of very wet-wet.

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
