New Work Commencing at Gallery at Redlands

Ready to begin new watercolor studies

Edouard Manet: “This will be my best painting yet.”

Edgar Degas: “You always say that.”

Manet: “Yes, and it’s always true.”

For any of you who have not yet viewed “The Impressionists” on DVD (a BBC production), you simply must! It is a gripping motion picture chronicling the dramatic lives of Monet, Manet, Degas, Renoir and Cezanne. You will laugh and you will cry. The dialogue above always fills my head when I am confident over starting a new watercolor series. (This will be my best painting yet!) Last night I prepared three stretched watercolor papers on stretcher bars and today (Friday) I intend to get started on them. If they turn out like I hope they will, I will be blogging their progress.

Some early morning reading and writing before I begin watercoloring

Thanks for reading.
