plant against yellow wall

I always used to wonder why paintings in museums had such dull names – “woman 3”, “man in red hat” – but now I realise when you’re just sketching the things around you and often the same things multiple times you’re not thinking about names, anything that distinguishes it from the others is fine. Paintings in museums are often artists’ sketches and preliminary works and they will have just had any old name to catalogue them. I’ve drawn this plant quite a few times now and you run out of names very quickly :)

    1. Thanks. I’m slowly realising that we can’t get away from our inbuilt styles. Even if I try really hard to do something understated or subtle it still ends up pretty much the same :) I really like the way you use colour – everything always seems perfectly coherent and balanced.
