Ways of creating art :: Façons de faire de l’art

“Like the sundial, my paint box counts no hours but sunny ones.” 
— Arthur Rackham

Directly from the Tourne-Sol co-operative farm, a bunch of fresh beets. We can actually eat the beet leaves by cooking them like spinach, and I wonder why regular groceries take out the beet leaves as they are a very good source of folic acid (good for the liver) amongst other qualities. Today I was busy learning a 3D software program called “Sketchup”. There are many ways of creating art nowadays, including digitally, but the best way for me is still with a pen, brush and water colour.

Directement de la Ferme coopérative Tourne-Sol, des betteraves fraîches. Je me demande pourquoi les épiceries régulières enlèvent les branches de betteraves, car elles sont excellentes à manger et sont une bonne source d’acide f0lique. Aujourd’hui j’étais en train d’apprendre un logiciel 3D s’appelant “Sketchup”. Il y a plusieurs façons de faire de l’art, incluant digitalement, mais je préfère toujours avec une plume, pinceau et un peu d’aquarelle -)

    Beautiful colours and shapes. Never have to worry about what to paint, just look at what is on the table.
