Graphite Rose

Brrr tonight we found out the difference between cold and freezing.  I had a lay down after tea which I don’t normally do,  but was quite cold and thought it a good way to get warm under the covers. Just when I woke up I plugged the heater in and  damn every thing went off in the van.  It was freezing so thought would stay under the doona to get a bit warmer but it just doesn’t work that way really when its that cold.  After about 5 minutes of trying to work up the courage to go down to my connection  I stupidly realised there’s only one way to get warm again and thats to brave the outside, anyone would think it was snowing and ice out there hey?  Not really, not too far off the ice though. Its forecast 4-5 tonight but feels a lot colder than that already.  I’ve now got the heater on and a cup of tea,  and its a lot warmer.

The little rose above is done in graphite,  I actually got some water colours out last night and played around with them for awhile,  just on some sketch paper,  felt great just mixing and dropping the paint in for different techniques to try. I rarely end up with anything I’d call a painting though with watercolours,  definately not my best medium to work with, but I enjoy the different effects and things you can do with it,  would be great if they ended up worth looking at though, haha.
