    Nose too big, mouth not quite right so more work. But thankyou.

    I agree far too many trees vanishing along with hedgerows.

    I was talking on here a few days ago about having problems finding vegetable seeds on Amazon, I was going to grow my own veg, to save going out.

    Someone suggested for tomato seeds, to plant seeds from shop bought tomatoes. So with that idea, I googled to see what else I could do with shop bought vegetables...here is a You Tube video on that subject...then I remembered...I used to do that years ago...maybe I have found my lost mind again...

    Just finished a steam session and coughed best I could. My Laz-y-boy is set up (it's a vibrating one so that might be nice) and hopefully I will sleep ;)

    good evening all :)

    was 4.1 this morning

    - speaking of forgetting things I suddenly realised I hadn't hit post earlier :banghead:

    Loved the misty field and fences @Muddy Cyclist and I'm envious of your courage in going for portraits! @gennepher going from strength to strength :)

    good sleep and comfort to all :)

    fairly boring catch up art today - still lifes I suppose ;)
    no 1 was done with the cheap watercolour paint on typing paper - I wanted to try painting glass, no 2 is one of those physalis fruits done with some ancient gouache I found (from my schooldays :hilarious:), on typing paper.

    Thanks for compliments, portraits are something I have never done before, a lot to learn and more difficult than landscapes in my opinion. I admire you can do still life a bit like portrait art things have to look as they should, no room for mistakes unless you go for the abstract or Impressionism style. Well drawn and painted.
