Bill Sharp is a painter who posts paintings (including watercolors) on one blog (Bill Sharp—Paintings) and his lovely watercolor and ink sketches on another blog: Sketchbook Meditations. I suggest you take a your next visual break with Bill. (Visual Breaks are those times when you can't stand working at the computer one moment longer and need to see something human, and don't want to look at videos of YouTube Cats!)
In the best of times I get to visit few blogs. I'm always rushing to finish some work on the computer, write a blog post and then get on to the next job. I much prefer to look at art in books.
In the past several weeks I've been having problems with my internet connection. This week when I got back on line I ended up back at Bill's blogs. I love seeing how he handles space in his landscapes and manages to turn a jumble of vegetation into a recognizable visual design (landscape painters always inspire me).
But I also love his simple pen and watercolor sketches which seem to be effortless and not fussy.
That's my word for today, well two words, "not fussy." I'm going to go try and "be" that right now.
If you have some time today for a visual break go check out Bill's work. He has a lovely white dog named Miki. I don't think Miki gets drawn enough.
OK, so maybe that's just me…but you'll find lots of lovely work to inspire your own "not fussy" day.
(I added him to the blog list at the base of the left column to remind myself [and you] to visit Bill more.)
