How to capture a moment.....(or "giving equal time to "pears", after my post on "indigo"...)
Step one, buy a handmade pottery pitcher from a local artisan.
Step two, roam the yard/garden searching for somethin lovely to fill the new container.
Step three, arrange everything on the new table runner.....and add a pear!
Step four, grab your camera to record this from a couple of different angles. Trying to hold the camera steady, but it is not too important as these photos are just for general reference when I (hopefully) start doing a watercolor based on this moment.
Step five, wait a day or two....the pear is getting ripe! Still no time to paint. Grab sketchbook and make a loose pencil drawing directly from the still life, not the photos....(go over this sketch with India ink pens when the pencil drawing will not scan properly for this post!)
Step six, eat the pear for breakfast.....perhaps pausing to sketch it after slicing,.... or NOT.
Hope for time to get out the watercolors while the arrangement is still on the table....
