Shortly before Christmas I was asked to undertake a commission as a retirement gift. It was a bit of a breakaway for me, I don’t do buildings very often. However, I got to take my own reference photo’s and I did enjoy doing it. I find watercolour very different to working with coloured pencils or pastels. I really do need to concentrate quite hard and distractions irritate me no end!
This means that currently I don’t work with them too often as I am too tired for the level of concentration required after a full days work. Hopefully, I may get to do some more when I finish work because I do enjoy painting if I am in that frame of mind.
I did receive a lovely letter of thanks from the recipient which I really appreciated. I shall file it away in my portfolio, I like to keep those little bits and pieces as a record of some of the projects undertaken. Meanwhile, I am back to painting flowers, they are not my normal subject either!
