...but I started again today.
I was in BCN this morning, slightly against the odds, the man twisted an ankle last night, and eldest turned her head quickly and had one of those twang-grab moments and now cannot move her neck properly and in quite uncomfortable. Nothing serious for either of them, they went off to work and school respectively. They are uncomfortable though.
However, I made it.
I got a few things, like a brand new paella dish...I am by no means a brilliant cook, and the man is doing most of the cooking right now, but I got a paella cookbook for myself just before Christmas, and the pan was required too. I also got one for my brother-in-law, now I have to mail it!
I don't seem to be able to stick to the topic this evening...
I was in BCN shopping today, and I went by my FAVORITE art store here...it is almost as good as one of the ones I know in Toronto, but doesn't quite have the same dusty scent that summons up the possibility of unforeseen treasure.
I had decided that I would cough up and buy one sheet of large water colour paper. That stuff is some expensive, let me tell you...well...I got in there and fancy me, it was on sale! January is sale month in Catalonia....I got TWENTY sheets, a Euro twenty EACH!!!
I felt like a Charlie from the Chocolate factory, surprise money and sudden goodies!!!
Should have seen the smile on my face.
Wish I could have seen it to, but what the heck.
I hurried home and started on this.....
I hope you can see that...it is the drawing for the beginning of a new painting....it is a little faint because I don't want the pencil work to show through, and I beefed up the shadows as much as I could with my freebie download photo program...
Since a full half of the family is under the weather...tomorrow I'll...walk the dog in the mountains, cook, paint and study, maybe Sunday too!
Oh, I just went and checked out the photo, that brown smear isn't there in real life...it is a crisp beautiful stretch of clean paper....
