relaxing scratchings

(re-post from

Last Saturday I booked in, last minute, to Laurie's watercolour class at Colours.
It was a treat to myself for having completed most of my work in the first week of summer vacation and with only one day of camp for he Wee Guy.
In other words, I was squeezing it all in and around the family.
So on Saturday I played.
Well, in reality, on Saturday I woke at 4.30am, couldn't sleep so got up, worked and then phoned for the class.
When I got there I just relaxed totally as Laurie explained and demo'd all the watercolour tricks and tips I should have learned before I cranked open the lid of my Cottman paint pan.
Or should I?
I loved the class. It was incredibly meditative just laying down washes of colour and dripping wet-in-wet, glazing and dry brushing, and making marks under excellent instruction. I could have done this all day ...
... or maybe not.
My eyelids got heavier and I crashed for the afternoon once back home.
Sooo relaxing!

[btw, this weekend I managed a decent night's sleep with no early morning insomnia :)]
