Review: The Watercolor Course You’ve Always Wanted by Leslie Frontz

Untitled

I’ve been drawn in by another painting book.  I’ve been on the lookout for one for a while as the ones I got from the library a while ago just weren’t what I needed.  When I draw or paint, I have to  use a photo of whatever the subject is.  I’ve never been any good at drawing what is in front of me; it’s just the way my mind processes images.  Even if I sit with a view ahead of me, I find it easier to take a photo of that view and then use the photo as a guide…I hope that makes sense!

Sunday Sevens #21

This is a bit of a late one today…it is still Sunday in the USA though! I really can’t believe it is February today! Already!! This week has been a strange one as things have been quiet on the paperwork/ sorting side of things. Visa paperwork has been submitted and we just have to wait. Our UK house is on the market so we just have to wait for viewings. We have also sorted the container to ship our belongings over the the US; we just have to wait for them. I don’t like waiting. I like to be in control of everything and I can’t control any of these things. It has actually been nice to just catch up with a few things this week!

1. On Sunday, we visited an antique store on the other side of the bay. It has always intrigued me as it is called “Alice’s Wonderland”! What a great name! They had some gorgeous stuff in but I held back and only purchased a couple of vintage Hoover Dam postcards. I am building my collection of vintage PC’s, mainly of places we have visited.
