Watercolour, acrylic ink, black marker
on watercolour paper
4 x 6 inches
Barbara Muir © 2020A friend and I met at the Art Gallery of Ontario yesterday --
our large, beautiful, public gallery. We wandered through a
few shows, marvelling at works we've long admired, and
some we'd never seen. Things had been moved around since
I visited last, and some of the galleries painted in fresh
new colours. It made me realize how important background
colour is to how the art impacts me.
But I meant to tell you about something else. I found a little drawing
today on watercolour paper, that is supposed to be turned into
postcards. You'd have to be a million times faster at painting than
me to be able to whip off postcard paintings when you were
on holiday, and casually send them to all your friends. Still
I was captured by the size today when I'm working on a
huge drawing, and had some fun using watercolours and
acrylic ink, to make it more dramatic.
Have a loving what you do day.
