My Casa: Daily Art Practice
My husband is still working his way through our house, remodeling, and he has only two rooms remaining. I never shared the final pictures of our bedroom so here it is. We still have a few items to purchase but it is mostly complete. I tried to find a “before” photo but the only ones I have are from the year after we moved into the house so that is the photo below. The walls were blue and the bulkhead above the window, which you can see in the above photo, was painted brown. Yuck! We are loving all the light that our freshly painted walls and light flooring provide.
We have 4 sets of bookcases and they are one of my favorite features in our room. This past summer I cleared out 25 bags of books, a lot of them I had never read. I like having room to “style” the bookshelves and overall, it lends a less cluttered look. The model ships on the top of the shelves were completed by my husband early on in our marriage. We had time to sit and complete hobbies back then.
It’s that time for my quarterly column on the StencilGirl blog. This time around, I am using something other than my usual medium. I am trying my hand at colored pencils. Hop over and have a look HERE.
Daily Art Practice
My shopfront today is a bit of an experiment, using looser strokes and watercolor. The line work was inspired by a recent online class with Felix Schienberger, who uses scribbly lines and limited paint. I found the colors in this shopfront, CASA SAO MIGUEL, appealing as well as the bicycle. At the end, I added a bit of colored pencil as well.
I am joining the Tea Day ladies, hosted by Elizabeth and Bleubeard. My tea today is The Republic of Tea Thanks You’re A Peach Tea . I love anything fruity and this tea is a delicious peach. I found this tea at Hobby Lobby on clearance for less than $1.
Happy Tea Day,
