yes I do know what you mean - although I'm at the beginning of the journey - wanting to experiment with collage mixed media etc. - but also wanting to just paint with the watercolours that I love as I'm full of ideas of what I want to paint next - so the experimenting is getting put on the back burner - beautiful painting - and just noticed your blackbird at the top - I've just painted one myself - yours is gorgeous!!!!!

This is absolutely gorgeous, love the colors and the 'glimmery ' on the water.
It's great to see you back and on mighty fine form. This painting is gorgeous. I like the contrast between the soft and hard edges. The warm colouring is just what we need after these very wet and grey days. I'll look forward to seeing more.

Sharon, Jane and Lisa, thankyou. I really appreciate your comments :)

That is beautiful Theresa! And I can relate to all that you said in this post. Sometimes we get paralyzed by too many ideas and there is not enough time (and sometimes energy) to do it all.
Theresa Evans said…
Thanks Deb. Yes, overwhelm definitely saps energy ... time to play and experiment helps enormously ;)

Hi Theresa, I love this northern scene. The orange and yellow at the top is sublime and the water looks so cold with icy little wavelets you get on lakes and reservoirs. Is it Crowden? It looks like it. As to your painting journey, yes, we have often talked about this haven't we, how the ideas compete for our attention and then there are so many ways to interpret them. But as you say experimentation is vital to us and we are bound at some point to come full circle -- till the next tangent!

Thanks Sheila, I'm pleased it speaks to you of 'round here' ... actually the reservoir is based on my memory of the various local reservoirs Paul and I have taken many walks around over the years. They all have that recognisable 'look' about them clothed in different seasons.

I'm trying to evoke memories of places in my work at the moment instead of working from life or references. But yes, I'm sure there'll be something else vying for attention in a while but for now ....

Gorgeous work Theresa. Your colours just glow in this. I've been looking at your pieces on 100 Washes and they are so inspiring. They are definitely teaching me a thing or three about watercolour. Thanks for posting on there and helping a watercolour student like to me to improve.

Thanks Laura, I really appreciate your comments :) Yes, the 100 Hundred Washes blog was great fun to do and taught me quite a bit through regular experimentation too. I'm really pleased the blog continues to be helpful!
