I haven't caught up from vacation yet so nothing much to post but these 3 little things I did in my sketchbook while in Ormond Beach. I was sure I did more drawing and painting - but maybe I just worked these 3 to death!
The last little watercolor sketch is the monthly group project from the same photo we are doing at Watercolor Workshop. I only had my graphitint pencils in limited colors and a sample set of Sennelier watercolors in only 6 colors so didn't get a good mix of colors in this one, but it's just a little something and I'll redo it in a real painting later this month.
I don't know who took the photo we're using - one of our mods, Gina, chose it and I have to ask her if it's from WetCanvas or not.
So why the title about eyes? I had an emergency eye appointment today after having some strange things in my left eye while away from home. I was sure it was the start or the actual fact of a detached retina and I was horrified at the thought that I could lose the sight in my left eye - and went around with my left eye closed seeing what my world would be like = not quite right. But the doc said it was just OLD AGE EYES = vitreal degeneration where the liquid in your eye turns from a watery juicy nice moisture to something more like hair gel and you get floaters and clouds and all kinds of interesting things in your eyes when you're trying to watch t.v. or the computer screen. Nothing to do - a fact of aging. Crap! One more thing that's turning to crap on my 51-year-old body. But I can still paint so that's enough complaining, right?
