I have been painting in Gouache. I went in my car to different spots and just felt weird so I came home and went on my daily Covid walk with my Gouache in hand and felt much better to paint what I am seeing and experiencing in real life. The Park. I walk through Penlee park and back up through Morab Gardens. Slowly with breaks.. It has been cold so I have not been able to stay long and suffer for my Art. But the spark is there. The love is there. and slowly I am building up my painting stamina.
