Sketchbook :: July 2016 ::

Today is the last day of World Watercolor Month 2016. Thank you Doodlewash for organising it and thank you everyone for taking the time to drop by and being so supportive with your kind words. It means a lot to me :)

Instead of sharing a sketch or a painting with you tonight, I made this video, just to say Thank You!

L’Oiseau bleu

Some films you watched as a kid just leave an imprint on your psyche, somehow… or maybe all the films you have ever watched do just that?

Bruce and Scarlet

Bruce:

Bruce was sitting in his office.

He was thinking about the meaning – or lack of – in his life.

All the sacrifices he had made for something bigger than himself…

The Owls Are On Hot Pressed Seams…

Earlier on this week, I mentioned briefly that I had spent quite a bit of time on a painting and I also mentioned my Dad’s birthday a while back and even shared with you the draft of his painting… well, he received it in the post today!

Kids celebrating World Watercolor Month… 

As some of you may already know, this month is World Watercolor Month. This year the event has teamed up with The Dreaming Zebra Foundation to raise awareness and funds to get art supplies for underprivileged kids.

The Dreaming Zebra Foundation is unique in that they provide an art recycling program that is free to the public. Reusable art & music supplies that would otherwise be discarded, along with new or unsold materials are donated by individuals and businesses and matched to recipients who have requested those materials for art education purposes in communities around the world – so you can give then your unwanted art supplies of buy some for them here.

I believe that nurturing Art and creativity in children is so important! Amongst many other things, it’s such a great to learn problem solving, basic DIY skills and resourcefulness.

I am always more than happy to share my sketchbooks and watercolour tools with my son and his friends when we are out and about.

Here is their celebration of watercolour during this World Water Color Month…

But here we go, here are my sketches of today:
