Mushroom Jungle

Mushroom Jungle
I woke up this morning completely uninspired & thinking
I might not have another creative idea in me. I happens once in while
and the cure is always very simple. I make myself sit down in front of my desk
with my watercolors, a new sheet of pretty paper & good music.
Just start painting whatever comes to mind and don't stop until you just can't stop.
I guess I had mushroom on my mind & these guys just showed up :-)
Work in progress. Watercolor on Saint-Armand paper.

lovely! the tonal variations are drawing my eye around this.. the softness as they fade/mix/mingle into each other is poetic :)

Don't you hate times like that, but I love your solution. I go for a walk and get inspired by nature. This one is going to be gorgeous! What size paper are you working on for this project? Hugs from Alaska.

Force: that's as good a solution as any. I usually spend those days stretching paper or building panels or cleaning the studio or something. Be productive somehow while still being stumped or unmotivated.

ahh, this is going to be one of your best ones... I can just see it... the guys look so curious and full of energy... probably the mushrooms and their scents made them so :D

What a delight Gennine!
Yesterday I watched this video about the 'Fungarium At Kew Gardens'

then went in search of some lovely mushroom images so that I could share with my readers.
I had to stop as another project popped up and then you posted this to remind me to finish my post- thank you.

Happy day Lovely!

I can see this is going to be lovely, the colours are wonderful already, love the ink caps blues. I saw some really weird mushrooms at the weekend, I will try and photograph them.

Sometimes it's a good idea to just get going and push paint around. :) I do love mushrooms...

Esta frase me ayuda siempre, quizas te ayude a ti tambien... aunque por lo que dices, tu ya la haz hecho tuya.
