Have I mentioned how much I’m enjoying the Shoot it, Sketch it challenge? I’ve now painted four of the photographs I took in Nelson/Golden Bay last Christmas. All were taken with art projects in mind but have been in the ‘I will get around to these one day’ pile. It is very satisfying to have the bird of paradise, leaf study, toy museum and this random texture marked off the list.

Also participating in Shoot it, Sketch it are Clouds of ColourThe Little LeafLunch Sketch and Poppytump.

      Thanks, Alana. Painting this was a bit like being in the eye of a (festive) storm – a little bit of calm in an otherwise chaotic week. Great therapy.

      And so you didn’t post a sketch this week – that’s completely understandable. I see that you did manage to post some lovely photos of your Christmas tree decorations though : )

        Yes – I had some close ups I was looking forward to posting, But I knew exactly what I wanted to draw this week, just didn’t get a chance to sit down & do it 🙂

    Love the concept and colours!
    No entry from me this week. Been busy enjoying my holidays and my sketch of Ofelia took a little longer than I thought. Maybe next week, as I also really enjoy it!
