Tea at my house

"Tea At My House" is the newest entry in my sketch diary. This particular teapot sits on my China cabinet beside dry flowers and few homemade candles in brass holders.  I purchased the pot for a dollar at a second hand store.

This particular sketch diary/journal is dedicated to everyday moments such as tea before bed, doing routine stretches as well as sitting in front of the fireplace. There's nothing profound, nothing of earth shattering importance in these here pages yet, I find comfort when looking at these everyday steps captured in color.

Mixed media: Metallic watercolors, ink, colored pencil

Goodbye flowers, hello cold.  It seems during the cold I've lost artistic inspiration so I filled my sketch diary with paintings inspired by lack of inspiration.

Goodbye sunny flowers. It's oh so cold these days.

Goodbye flowers

The sun rays have left, they took with them my ability to create.

Cold Outside

At the table in my under pants I sit and wait.

Why do we let the weather man lie? He says it'll only be a light shower then the rain will stop. Two days later and it hasn't stopped raining. We pay this man to lie to us. Why? Why do we do this? Why do I keep listening to this man, hanging on his every word as if it were gospel?

The Ominous Rainy Day

In this painting the forecast was clear sunny skies high of 80 degrees. Click to view this painting larger. By doing so you'll be able to see the poor soul going down the hill then up to her strangely illuminated home.

Obviously I'm having a great time with watercolors and my new sketch diary 🙂 My goal for the diary is to draw the basics, everyday things with my own little twist.

I had no idea I could use a basic crayola marker this way. All I did was draw a little of the picture then brush over it with a wet brush. Some of them I really liked but others I wish I'd done a few things differently.
