One year behind me :: Un an derrière moi

On May 17th 2012, exactly one year ago, I was posting my first sketch on this blog… as I had no idea what to paint, I just painted what was in front of me… my feet! With Chinese slippers ;-) One year has gone by and I have posted 180 posts. This means that I averaged about 1 painting every two days. As I have one year behind me, I wonder what my paintings will look like in one year from now? Very curious!

Il y a exactement un an à ce jour, je publiais mon premier croquis en aquarelle… et c’était mes pieds! Chaussés de pantouffles chinoises ;-) Je ne savais pas quoi peindre, donc j’ai peint ce qui était en avant de moi ;-) Depuis ce temps, j’ai publié 180 “posts”, environ 1 peinture/dessin aux deux jours. Comme j’ai un an derrière moi d’aquarelles, je me demande ce que mes peintures vont avoir de l’air dans un an? Très curieuse!

Paper: Moleskine Watercolour Sketchbook
Ink: Noodlers #41 Brown
Colours: Prussian Blue, Cadmium Yellow Light & Burnt Sienna

    I was going to say congrats but that has been said. Instead I will tell you to savour the feeling of having completed so many watercolour sketches and shared them. I have enjoyed your postings and look forward to seeing the emails in my inbox. I hope you will be able to continue. You have helped me so much with my own watercolour sketches. Bien faite!

      Thank you so much Verla :: it is your comments and appreciation that keep me going too! Sometimes I do not feel like making the effort… And then I think of the people that follow me, and I do not want to let them down! So this encourages me to continue… And when I paint I am totally happy and in the flow ;-)
