I have been looking for fresh inspiration of drawing/painting projects. The doodle challenge was great but now it is finished it’s up to me to keep some of the momentum going and to push myself to try new things. I had been mulling over a few ideas but nothing really struck me as a ‘I must do it now kind of project’ and then a week or so ago my talented blogging friend Vicki posted some photos on her Instagram of around her garden and I fell in love with a picture of her blueberries starting to ripen. It was the variation in colours and the way the light caught them that I liked so much and I thought it would be a fun challenge to paint them. A day or so later the same photos appeared on her blog so I plucked up the courage to ask if it was ok to paint them. Hop over to have a look at the original photo and whilst you are there have a look at her gorgeous crochet skittles blanked (love, love, love it so much).
Feeling brave – here are the blueberries in watercolour.
Thank you Vicki for the permission to use your picture and for the inspiration. My scanner decided it isn’t going to work so I have had to take a photo of it but I hope this is ok and that I haven’t butchered your lovely picture.
