With the extreme changes that happened this month, I decided to start the Moondae Challenges
this Moonday (Monday).
I have no idea what the first challenge will be, and so, the next three days (Dark of the Moon) heading into the New Moon on Saturday will be a time when I paint, am in relative silence. Thankfully when I have to work it will not be in client meetings but shellacking a lovely old commode (dresser) and working on a tapestry. Both are meditative, and so this is good work.
All day I have been working with the same colors; because of Aquabee, besides my quick watercolor of Booby Gurl going into silence, above, I am posting the other images created this day. I chose the same colors to mix and play with all day. . . hmmm.
I bought two new Daniel Smith Primatek colors from Merriartist because of their great sale this month; Yavapei won the day with blues and greens mixed.
I also am working with contour drawing today. Many people will talk about
Betty Edward’s or some other teacher; I prefer the wonderful book by Kimon Nicolaides,
The Natural Way to Draw, 1938. I bought it at 25, and have used it my whole life!
Watercolors created with Noodler’s pen using Polar Brown Noodler’s ink in a square Aquabee Super Deluxe journal (or Stillman & Birnman Alpha),
with Daniel Smith, Holbien, and QoR watercolors.
