It's a busy time at the moment, but I decided to take up again my warm-up exercises. There are many projects on my easel, waiting for a concentrate finish, but at the moment it's hard to find time for this. So I only do loose washes and enjoy the process and the vibrant late Summer colors.

All in mail never clinking.”

This year I've plant seedpods of Naturtium and I was so pleased that their comes a lot of green leaf immediately. But then nothing happened for a long time. Well, I thought, they were old seeds, they will not bloom any more. But what a surprise, since two weeks my basket becomes more and more blossoms in a lovely orange, yellow and red orange colors. I'm thrilled and must catch their beauty on paper.

 This year in June I've lost my very dear Soul Sister Elle van der Wagt. She was a very sweet soul, immensely talented photographer, humorous and big-hearted dear friend and much more to me. I miss her very much and so I've decided to paint her portrait. First I've done an akurat sketch to step into the mood and now I've done a very loose study of her beautiful eyes.

may alight upon you.
