Haven't had much time to paint as the pesky housework is screaming at me again, but dashed outside for a few minutes to try my new Aquash brush with my old Neocolor II Aquarelle crayons on the petunia bed (would anyone know why the dark purples and pinks are flourishing, while the white one had a single lonely flower then closed up shop? It looks healthy, but no blossoms.) These crayons are great for sketching, but have quite a cloudy, milky look when washed over, especially in densely coloured areas, so I don't think I'd use them on a major project. Or maybe I just haven't been patient enough with them - must stop scribbling and spend some quality time...?
I did another rather frenetic sketch, vaguely based, from memory, on the July virtual sketch date of sunquats, but when I checked the reference, it's of course nothing like it, apart from orangey orbs - and I remembered one had a shadow of a leaf on it, which just looks like a slip of the hand on mine! But the yellows and oranges of the crayons are nice and clear and bright.
Is anyone else having trouble with their blog lists? - insteading of giving me my list of updated blogs in order of most recent down, there's just the list, and the links take you to Feedburner first from where you have to click on the blog you want - so extremely annoying, and does not incline me to want to subscribe to Feedburner one little tiny bit! Does anyone know what to do about it? I have put a question on Blogger Help... He-eee-elpp!!
