Till Death Do Us Part: Sketching and a Family Wedding
If you like this please +1 it!
I spent a few days in the south of England in July. I went there with my husband Marcel and three children, Honor, Paddy and Liv, to celebrate the wedding of Marcel’s sister, Monique, to her boyfriend of nearly twenty years, Mark. We knew that with two teenagers in our midst – Honor is 16 and Paddy was 14 at the time, while Liv had just turned 12 – there may be some strongly-expressed opinions about what we’d do and where we’d go over the few days away, but we were looking forward to our trip very much. We would be celebrating a very happy occasion.
This is page 1 of my brand-new sketchbook, a Handbook Journal, which I was inspired to buy after seeing Marc Holmes’ and Shari Blaukopf’s beautiful work during our workshop in Galway a fortnight earlier. Each to his own, as they say – while it’s a beautiful product, I found the watercolour paint a bit slippery on the paper: the colour wasn’t embraced by the paper. You can see how the paint doesn’t change from the initial stroke, doesn’t settle and become absorbed, in the way that it might.
