Sketching in watercolor
Everywhere i look, even now at this computer looking out my rain-streaked window at grey roofs and an overcast sky, i am seeing beautiful things to paint. This island is an artist’s paradise. However, i shall have to wait to share my little attempts at catching some of the magic until i get home as I neglected to pack the patch cord needed to upload photos of my work to the computer. john just showed me how to transfer photos direct from the flash card-Whee and i am now on Firefox again courtesy of john (he paints in oil and is very accomplished)
But my heart is singing as i am free to paint whatever i see and already have several little sketches to share. Last night i went inquest of the full moon over the water and learned the importance of packing a flashlight. It is in my kit now. today I’ll go looking for surf when the rain abates and visit two of the studios open to the public. There are more than 20 to visit as one is able.
And the cottage i am staying in is perfect. This week there are only three of us, a lovely couple and myself leaving two rooms vacant so it is very quiet. I have almost complete run of the kitchen as they prefer to eat out. It’s like having one’s own private place on the island at a fraction of the cost. I’ll be back!
