from the moment i got Patrice's invitation to a dc
themed 'coat', images began to built up in my head.
there was that idea of the garden wearing a new coat now for sure.
the only thing i lacked was time to put the image onto paper.
but with one eye on the clock i started painting.
after uploading the result i wasn't quite pleased about certain parts.
but time was up.
so later on and back home i decided to finish the gouache.
i made myself a cup of coffee and sat down.
the next moment i pushed over my cup and there was a gouache with a big coffee stain.
ok, no dc for me after all...
while tearing up the 'garden coat' an idea came to the rescue.
this is a challenge after all.
please have a look at Patrice's beautiful blog,
we are all wearing coats this weekend.
fine weekend to you
