20 min challenge

I have had so little time to paint of late. Life has been hectic as I have been travelling hugely.  My travels have taken me to some really remote and rural parts of the country. There was very little time for anything expect work! However I have a small pan of travelling paints and a sketch book and keep them handy, so when we stopped at a small town for a meal, the pink bougainvillea in front of this old house, caught my eye and I did a quick 20 min sketch. It turned out well and I realise it was because I didn't have time to think, just grab my pencil, do a quick sketch, and paint quickly.....

  3. Brinda It always pays to have a sketchbook and a set of paints handy, especially when you come across a few minutes and a lovely view like this. Nice job!!! I hope you have a waterbrush...that makes it even easier!
