Painted in my art journal. I had the pleasure of visiting the new Botanic Gardens at Peppers Creek in Dagsboro, DE- near my home. It was a lovely day. There are forests, meadows and dunes in the gardens- benches and paths. It was peaceful and a real cup-filling sort of place.
This is a painting/sketch from my France trip last year. My sister and I went for 2 weeks. One week was a watercolor art journaling workshop and the other week we were on our own. This sketch is one of my favorite places in Provence. Its is in Vence, the old town.
This was fun to paint. I used Procreate on my iPad. First I did the chair using a ref photo from Pinterest. Then I added the stones, using 1-point perspective. Then I added a texture for the back wall but it was too plain, so I added the faded letters. I was going for that old vintage painted ads that were once popular. There is so much to explore with Procreate. A simple program with so much going on...exactly how I describe baseball, a simple game with so much going on!
happy painting. I miss baseball. And eating out in restaurants, and having friends over, and walking the boardwalk and the beach. This too shall pass...
