Experimenting with washes of colour on some of these new works. Just love the variations you get plus I can then put it straight over the "drawing" scribbles lines I've made that I want to keep. Best of both worlds. Still love thick strong colour but a mixture of both is nice.
Love the way the afternoon light is streaming through the back of the canvas in this pic. Just gives it that extra dimension.
What's your favourite technique?
The Beauty Before You. When you are looking at a sunset and are in contact with the beauty of nature, practice mindful breathing. Touch the beauty that is before you. I am breathing in - what happiness! I am breathing out - the sunset is lovely! Continue that way for a few minutes. Getting in touch with the beauty of nature makes life much more beautiful, much more real, and the more mindful and concentrated you are, the more deeply the sunset will reveal itself to you. Your happiness is multiplied by ten, by twenty.
Look at a leaf or a flower with mindfulness,
Listen to the song of a bird and you will get much more deeply in touch with them.
After a minute of this practice, your joy will increase; your breathing will become deeper and more gentle and this gentleness and depth will influence your whole body. ~Thich Nhat Hanh~
Sunset lovers 🌅 this is another photograph of our Andalusian style photo shooting from last weekend. Tomorrow, I will hopefully be able to edit all of them. Unfortunately, I’m still sick and have my doubts of being capable to capture a nice landscape scenery for this weeks challenge. Let’s see how I feel tomorrow.

Would you like to live by the water like this ?
What a wonderful world! It's no secret that life near the water has a lot to offer. Beautiful views, scenic drives, fun activities. This dining room in this Nordic home of @sildahuset is simplicity breathtaking, especially in during sunrise and sunset 🌅.

"There are days I am whole
Some days I feel bruised
A silhouette of verse emerges
To mirror my mood
And with every word
I undress my soul
Baring it to the world" - Collette O'Mahony, The Soul in Words: A collection of Poetry & Verse.
