Today #2: Stop, Start

I probably should call this one ‘Yesterday and Today’. I started taking photographs of my day yesterday morning and my camera battery went flat so I ended up leaving it to charge for the rest of the day and took some more photos this morning. So after a bit of a stop-start, this is from the past 24 hours.

My Morning Glory seedlings are no longer seedlings and are going a bit crazy climbing the trellis and railings on our balcony.

I realised that the nib on my favourite drawing pen was getting a bit ‘tired’. This was when I discovered that my pens are the disposable ones, not the ones with replaceable nibs and ink so I ordered a couple of new pens.

I spent some time yesterday reading my new copy of Urban Watercolor Sketching, which isn’t really about urban sketching at all but is a very useful guide to watercolour painting.

This morning, as on most days I checked on the plants outside and gave them some water, noticing that the wildflower seeds I’d scattered a few weeks ago have not only grown but at least one is flowering.

Last night I spent a bit of time practising a bit more with watercolour glazes.

I had a bad night’s sleep last night so like my camera yesterday, I’m spending the rest of the day recharging.

    Recharging is what we all need from time to time. The battery metaphor works for life too.

    Tha ks for the book link too. It looked good enough for me to treat myself to a belated birthday gift
