Cotswolds Village Painting

Because they are amazingly charming and quaint, the Cotswolds villages provide limitless scenery and subjects for watercolor sketching.  The Anywhere Art group members have been very busy!

Opportunities for finding quality subject matter are not limited to landscape we had to taste the local tea and cake in order to find teapots to sketch.

On the right above the teaot is tea cake which contains tea soaked raisins.

We are trying all sorts of local foods of the region.

Domestic Still Life

Today in the art class I teach at Escondido Adult School, We arranged objects on our desk and painted from life. Everyone had a unique selection of objects and did excellent paintings.

Have you ever studied your home looking for random still life set ups? 

I took a few photos of colorful still lifes I found in my kitchen. I wonder if there are any still lifes around your house? Let me know if you find any and go ahead and paint one if you have time.
