Sketching on the first of November searching for colors
I was sketching and having a great promenade on the first of November, while the other people goes for Halloween. Ok this was about my Halloween. 🙂 For now I feel comfortable to do like that, let’s see in the future when I will have child(s).
The first November here was a great day, the sun was shining and the temperature very warm. Everyone was celebrating deads here yesterday night, we were delighted to celebrate life today. 🙂
Ok, it’s time to go out, to have a great promenade with my love (slowly slowly) and to breathe nice sea air, see flora and fauna, to move, to sketch, to have nice inspiration for the life. So we weared comfortable, and we went.
Going into a reserve near the sea is something unbelievable. We had a great time, a lot of chatting, sometimes with some fatigue, but was an incredible day. I’m so happy even to remember.
Obviously I was full of art equipment, pencils, watercolors, fountain pens, and all the bells and whistles. In the meantime I was breaking my back with all this sketching equipment, and more we having fun harvesting small woods and nice flat stones for some more art.
But I had an illumination. I was burning to make some sketching, but i realized to sketch not that much detailed. Just some details. I liked to show in my dear diary the way can be as seen all the show of the nature for the first time: a big bunch of colors, stunning colors.
I used only a large flat brush #14 and a bit of Gelly Roll White Pen for the sea drops, and a light mark with the Lumocolor 4B pencil for the outlines.
Big, quick strokes for a luminous sketch I believe. I can assure that I don’t know why but my faithful watercolors this time made a really made a great difference.
I was like possessed when doing this sketching, it’s the first time this think happens.
So it happened a second time, some time later, when I was back home.
I was just seated at home in the art attack area and I was again astonished by the beauty of my panorama just in from of my balcony: few pine trees 🙂 full of birds going away, migrating don’t know where.
Possibly I was even more possessed. And I used again that #14 brush used for the sketching of this morning. And the same technique. Bold colors, lively long strokes and nose near the colors.
Happy first November to everyone! I will remember it for a long time.
