Sunset Study in Blue & Orange

I got a new medium and I switched to bristol paper for this one. I forgot how lovely bristol paper is to paint on until another artist mentioned it in her IG feed.

Oh right, the medium. Now I can achieve brushstrokes easily. I like to have options when I paint, just a few.

What do you like to do during this weird time? I ask because this pandemic is wearing on me. Any form of entertainment is wonderful. I got a text earlier today asking if I ever considered the army. The army? No, I said. But have you ever considered buying a painting? Maybe, was the answer. That entertained me for hours.

Tomorrow I am off to the gallery and then I will give a painting tutorial.

Anyways, painting has helped me a lot to stay engaged and stay safe. What do you do to keep the boredom out?
