Liz sketches in Sydney

I can only apologise to Liz for the late posting here of her card. I received it ages ago but must have popped it in a sketchbook for safe keeping. It was only recently I used the book to find, with great relief, the card inside.

If you're a follower of Liz's Blog I think you might detect a change in her work, a freer, looser use of the watercolour medium.
 I love the direction she's going in and it's great to see the sheer joy she's experiencing coming through in her sketches.

Liz says this card, showing St Thomas, North Sydney, shows her experimenting with distorted perspective and loose brushstrokes.
And I should mention that the sketch was to be completed in under 15 minutes

It's wonderful to have a real Liz Steel in my possession.

Richmond Park from Alison

I received my postcard from Alison! Thank you Alison for such a wonderful card of your winter in the park. I can truly feel the drab grey skies you speak about in you letter. I am also thankful for the siennas that bring some warm color to the grey days of winter. Hopefully your sun is back out and your spring will come quickly! For us, although it has been colder than normal in Southern California we usually have sun and look forward to the grey rainy days that are few and far between.
