1) Storm in Wash 2) CBCA, NSW Branch Night of Notable, free!

Friends, have you ever tried to catch a storm? I directly put paints and developed the image. Timing is crucial to create washes. Check the condition of a paper. After a first wash of raw sienna, I enjoyed adding paints and a bit slow down or had a pleasure of playing around with brushes and colours on a half dried paper. In my experience, it's wise to stick to the strongest impression, because clouds are changing from moment to moment. I developed the chosen impression before the eyes would forget it. 

In a storm, clouds are dramatically moving and a shower is developing and partially, a blue sky is left. I chose a shower for a focal point that interested me most. Then, I got on a job. Quick, quick! Wash and wet-in-wet is fun. Storms and waves, the movement fascinates me.  
Rain and a storm are daily matters. "Are you drawing clouds?" people talked to me from curiousity. I believe that an artist pulls out something interesting from ordinary things. It's up to an artist's view how to find subjects. I'll enjoy washes more. I love capturing something moving in washes.

    1. Thank u, Blaga!! It was so windy. I got wet some. The point is to have fun. A good work is a subproduct of my daily work/attempt. You know my "waves" are good examples. I did not give up and kept trying it. Then, I've found a way and to the present. Cheers, wink, wink, ((Hugs)), Sadami

      Gracias, Joshemari y sí, por supuesto, una tormenta es hermosa. O el ojo de un artista puede encontrar la belleza y la saca de todo, creo. Eres un artista. ¡Estoy seguro de que puedes / lo haré!
      Mis mejores deseos, Sadami

      Thank u, Joshemari and yes, of course, a storm is beautiful. Or an artist's eye can find the beauty and pulls it out from anything, I believe. You're an artist. I'm sure you can / will do it!
      Best wishes, Sadami

    1. Good idea, Agnieszka! See how it goes. I put a first wash that helped me lots. But each one has different approach. Find your own way and let's enjoy adventure! Best wishes, Sadami
