One more session of the “Philosophy of the Sketchbook” has me painting. Hoping I will be as motivated when the workshop is over! Am loving my new watercolor pencils. It is sketching and playing at the same time.
Remembering my Father
It will be ten years next month since my dearest Father passed away. In his honor I am painting him again, in watercolor this time. He was the best man ever. A treasure. And I miss him yet today. This painting is a work in progress. Not finished yet. #Bernard James Hauber. #Bernard #Hauber
Sightseeing in Europe
Reviewing my trip photos is always fun and I was delighted to discover this photo that I took in the small Austrian Village of Mondsee. With so many sights to see I was snapping photos very quickly. I did not realize at the time what an ironic moment that I captured. And yes….it is very photogenic.
After I returned from an inspirational trip to Europe I am “jumping back into art” by taking a Sketchbook Workshop with Jay Bailey. One of our tasks was to draw a self portrait using our left hand instead of right or if you are left handed use your right hand. It provides you with a wonderful loose rendering that is a great exercise.
