Graphite pencil on paper

The title is nothing to do with this sketch but to calm myself down from my messy paintings I make. I sit and do some basic sketches.

Tomatoes are one of my favourite subjects to paint and cook. In this painting, I have focused on the summery colours. Hope you feel it too.

A lady by the Hymn

8.85" x 7.4"
A lady by the Hymn
Watercolour on paper

Does she look hydrated enough?
Last summer, when I visited the Tate Modern gallery, London, Damien Hirst’s sculpture Hymn (1999) was being displayed in front of the Tate.
The sculpture was welcomed by children who were touching and leaning against it.
This is a painting of a lady who was resting with a cooled bottle of water.

St Nicolas, Kenilworth
Watercolour on paper

I accidentally ordered hot press watercolour papers instead of cold press that I had to adapt to the smooth surface. It is quite challenging but I think I am enjoying it.
