I was in a hurry to get home after work today, but I am keeping to my word to sketch every day. I decided to a quick sketch of a magnolia blossom near Finlay Community Center. It only took about 30 min and I really enjoyed the challenge of trying to draw the blossom. I do find it easier to draw organic shapes than geometric.
I am a self-taught artist who discovered the world of watercolour purely by accident in 1995. My favorite subjects are flowers, boats and glass. My greatest passion is to create unique and original visual enjoyment and many of my pieces are incorporated in private collections throughout Canada. I have been a contributing artist with the ASRS at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia since 1998. I continually find inspiration in the mediums themselves by exploring with different techniques and textures. Watercolour gives me the freedom to explore hidden perceptions and express them by blending closely observed reality with colour, texture, patterns and light. I do not subscribe to the idea that an artist has only one true voice or style of painting. Thank you for your interest ~~!
