genie of the brush: part 1

Let me begin by wishing all of my American friends a very happy 4th of July

Today’s quote is taken from Chapter 6: Making Marks in Tony Smibert’s Painting Landscapes from your Imagination: “There are no rules, no right or wrong ways to use your brushes, and no limitations to your creativity once you release this “genie of the brush.”


I think the genie was definitely released today
as I followed the exercises that combined washes and brush work.

Worldwatercolormonth Day 4

I would like to dedicate today’s post to the memory of the great humanitarian, Nobel Prize winner and holocaust survivor Eli Weisel who died at the age of 87 on Saturday, and to the memory of 13 year old Hallel Yaffe Ariel who was stabbed to death four days ago while she slept inside her house in Kiryat Arba, in a crime that is beyond comprehension. May they both rest in peace.
