Just so happens, I was off work for a week, had some time to relax, reflect and paint/draw without time restriction. Oh what a life! I wish I could live like that! Had a few attempts to plein air with pastels, quite unhappy with the result to be honest - but I think I will continue, pastel is easier thing for outside - or I just love the novelty feeling)) After the second completely frustrating try to do outdoor I just let myself to relax and made a postcard-style landscape, I am usually not a big fan of this things, but it was just nesessary to have some relative success to overcome the frustration of a few recent attempts:)
And finally, I've put some of my works on BlueThumb online gallery, just in case - not like I have high hopes to live off my art))
And another useful thing I've done duringthis lazy week - finished off Josef Zbukvic's book on watercolor. Enourmous amount of great advice, it all is sinking in now, but sure I'll apply lots of ideas from there.
