I don't have any progress shots to post today so I thought I'd post a shot from my trip back in April. My niece spent her first year of Queen's University at Herstmonceux Castle in southern England. It's closed to the public for tours when school is in session but because she's a student, we were able to walk about mostly at free will. Needless to say, I took a few hundred photos of the place! This shot is from a window looking outside into the centre courtyard.
Even though I'd cleaned up my painting table, the studio room itself was getting messy and cramped so I've been really sorting things out well. Especially the wall unit that contains a lot of supplies! That is making it so much nicer to come in here.
I've also been doing some research on jellyfish. I'm ready to draw out the painting but was wondering if jellyfish live in an area with sea plants such as kelp. So I checked it out online, found out they do and will now go ahead with what I'd planned. I didn't want to put a background of kelp and other plants and then find out it didn't look real because jelly fish didn't live in areas like that. ;-) Now, I know.
