I’ve been dancing into the world of surface pattern design whilst also brushing up on my watercolour skills. I’ve been watching Shari Blaukopf’s Craftsy video, Sketching the City in Pen, Ink & Watercolor. I really do love her style, and I love urban sketching, but I’d thought I’d play with other subject matter too.
I’ve had a few suggestions from friends on themes to try and this one was from a talented musician who, among her many other contributions to the world, teaches children piano and violin – a woman with much patience. Funny though, she was sure to mention to put a bottle of wine in there. I’m sure there must be a correlation there somewhere.
At some point in the process, I decided it needed some foliage. It feels very spring garden party to me.
And then I brought back the music notes. No, I do not sight-read. You can probably tell by my little composition. But my children do, so at least I know my lineage is improving with each generation.
