Who Doesn’t Love Summer Reading? : Daily Art Practice
Well, it’s August. Need I say more? I am not sure where the last few months went but they flew.
I didn’t have a lot of time to bake this week. Between Dr.’s appointments, errands and daily evening VBS we were tired.
But I did have time to finish a couple books and make a few quick sketches.
I am loving that the libraries are open again. Our library recently got their interlibrary loan system up and running again and here are a few of the books that I have been reading. All of these were fabulous and I wish I had taken more time on each chapter but the 3 weeks passed too quickly so I ended up speed reading a few days before they were due. Have you ever done that?
Watercolor Shop Fronts
Last week I shared my first paintings for the Singapore Shopfront challenge. They are a combination of watercolor, pen and gouache.
Here are a few more.
This first one, the Darwin Room, is actually in Tokyo but I am including in my sketchbook because I like it. I mean, it has plants growing out of the walls, what is not to like? AND it is a bookshop/restaurant!
Eleven Strands Italian Restaurant
I am joining the Tea Day Ladies hosted by Elizabeth and Bleubeard. My tea,Teavana Citrus Lavender Herbal Tea , is a new tea I found on clearance at Walmart. I wasn’t sure I would like this one because of the Lavender but I have found it to be very soothing and I love the flavor combination.
Happy Tea Day,
