Whee! Finished with the commissioned illustrations for now, and having emailed them off this morning, I fairly dashed down the road to Emmarentia Dam where the clear autumn sunshine and the ducks were calling. After weeks of careful black lines and digital colouring it was so good to dip a brush into real watercolour and splash it onto real paper!
I see now that the waterline is none too straight and the water itself rather murky and unsatisfactory. Lots of room for improvement, but it was a lovely hour or so, and I was glad to catch some of the autumn colours and get away from the computer.
I apologise for not doing much commenting lately (though I have been checking out most of my favourite blogs over breakfast or tea) - after hours on end on the 'pooter and with eyes, neck and shoulders screaming for mercy, I just put it on hold for a while. But thank you to all my visitors here for dropping by and taking the time to leave comments - it is as always very much appreciated. I should be back in the blogging saddle again soon!
