woyww- insipid still life

Nothing very exciting on my desk this week.... Titled "insipid still life".

I am still plodding on with the watercolour class. The latest painting is fairly bland as I am only up to the second wash of  prussian blue.  Hopefully the shapes and shadows will start to form as I lay more colour and then it will be more inspiring.  Or I can continue to dream.....

Next week should be far more exciting as I will be doing two classes with the wonderful Finnabair from Warsaw.  I couldn't miss an opportunity to take a class while she is in Sydney.  I love what she creates with all those bits and pieces of metal and rubbish.

For inspiration, ideas and general like minded chat join in with WOYWW.
