A Rose & a Smile.

Another painting 'A Rose & a Smile' for you lovely people. Once again I produced this painting to experiment and develop my use of colour, light and dark etc etc. I shan't babble on too much here. I've been sketching a lot of random little pictures in my sketchbook that I carry around everywhere, and some I've taken further by scanning in and adding colour, like this one for example. I can't stress enough how important it is to take even a tiny weeny little sketch/note book out with you. Personally I can't produce a masterpiece on the move, but I find some of my best ideas pop up from nowhere when I least expect it, and I simply HAVE to get it written down/make a quick doodle. Even if I don't take the idea any further right away, it's there, and you never know what the future holds :)
