On top of everything else, we’ve moved into a grade 2 listed Victorian terrace.
It’s charming and quirky, but also dated and spider-filled. So we’ll be gradually doing it up over the next few months (…years).
I don’t have lots of impressive Instagrammable photos of it, mostly because we barely have any furniture, but I thought it would be fun to share the colour scheme of one of the rooms. The photo is edited to show the colour more accurately.
I’ve started another painting to get a bit of practise in. This is Josh in front of our bike and cabin (and my messy set up).
He is such a fluff bear so a great chance to practise painting fur. The canvas is only A4 so it’s a nice size to fill a space quickly (which, at least to begin with, I find motivating).
I’ve realised I’m quite an expressive painter. Lots of mark making rather than realistic strokes. Obviously this painting is still in it’s infancy, but when I’ve worked a bit more on it I’ll try to challenge myself to fine-tune it a little bit.
The weather this weekend was relatively warm and bright. There’s the promise of painting outside in the air!
Happy Monday all ❤
