I have added some of the lyrics below so you can (hopefully) imagine the scene too.
This will be my last page for my 'Inspired by' theme at AJJ this month. It's a watercolour and a little different for me as I like adding words but didn't as I thought it made it seem more empty and lonely and also I deliberately didn't paint all of the wine bottle.
I staged the scene that I wanted to paint.
Please note that the glass had just a little drop of Marsala in, and the whisky is my husbands although I confess I used the empty bottle of wine from lunch. And the 'Whisky and Wine' in the song lyrics was just artistic license from a rhyming point of view - of course!
I wasn't sure that I was capable of painting this though - so I decided to take a photo on my tablet to help.
I used a grid I found in the photo editing app and drew a pencil grid in my journal and this definitely helped me to draw more accurate.
For fun I made a digital version as well...
however she doesn't look very lonely to me
I have had a wonderful fun month with hosting the 'Inspired by' challenge at AJJ (thanks Susi and Elizabeth for having me) and now looking forward to seeing what the July theme is :)
On the first day of June Yvonne's page used a beautiful Gustav Klimt image and I realised I didn't know much about him so I made a note to find out more. But day by day I kept being inspired by other things people mentioned or showed and my list has grown quite long with the last one noted yesterday to investigate Colour theory as mentioned by Susi... :)
Thank you so much to everybody that joined in with us at AJJ and sharing your amazing pages and what inspired you... and thank you for all your lovely comments left on my blog also.
That's all for now....
Thanks for stopping by,
Have a great day!
